Part two of the relief printing workshop!
#ReliefPrinting is the oldest form of #printmaking. This course is designed to teach students how to “think print” while carving away at an MDF block, then how to use that block to make multiple prints and how to layer images on top of one another
Students will continue their work with a 20×20″ block and 40×40″ block to prepare for the Steamroller Printing Extravaganza during Spf’18 Small Press Fair Fort Lauderdale on November 10th from noon to 6pm. All students enrolled in this class are also invited to participate in the steamroller event free of charge.
Students will get a sense of how it feels to work in a communal space surrounded by artists with similar interests. Students will also learn how to use and respect a large fine art press. Students will leave the class with a working knowledge of shop etiquette, linoleum carving, and printing techniques as well as a small portfolio of prints and their own MDF block.
This class will certify you to reserve and use our #etchingpress during open studio hours.
