In this class, students will create richly coloured prints on fabric using linoleum, woodblocks, rollers, and letterpress blocks. We will cover some of the challenges of printing on fabric versus paper, and use pre-cut blocks and other print matrices to experiment with printing on fabrics both by hand and in a printing press. You will go home with at least one beautifully printed .5 metre piece of fabric to enjoy as is or to use in future projects.
All materials are included. Students will be able to choose from a selection of fabrics that we have on hand in the studio (some plain colours, and some from printed yardage).Find out more »
In this class you’ll learn the basics of carving and printing a relief print from a linoleum block. You will design and carve your own block and learn how to print it by hand as well as on a press, and will leave the class with an edition of six completed prints. You will have the option to print your block in one colour, in a multiple colour gradient, or to try selectively inking your block to make a two colour print in one press run.
This class runs Monday evenings for two weeks, July 16 and 23, from 7 to 9:30pm.
No printmaking experience is required, and all materials, including paper, are provided.Find out more »
In this class you will learn techniques for creating one of a kind prints by drawing with ink on a smooth plate before printing on moistened rag paper. We will cover methods for creating images with ink rollers, various drawing tools, stencils and more. Making monotypes is fun and easy, and you can create amazing prints even if you’re not confident in your drawing skills.
All materials, including paper, are provided, and you will leave the class with at least one beautiful finished print. Depending on how you choose to prepare your plates you will likely have time to finish more than one print.Find out more »
