Introduction to Block Printing with Heidi Muller
January 22, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm$65.00
Learn the basic techniques for block (or relief) printing: how to transfer a design, carve with cutting tools, and ink and print an impression of your carved block onto paper. We’ll be using a soft rubbery medium that cuts easily and we’ll burnish our images by hand. Materials will be provided, but please bring some designs or images you’d like to work from. You’ll go home with a new set of skills and finished prints!
Heidi first learned printmaking in high school, and finally returned to it in 2019 by taking classes at Josephy. She makes linocut prints using the big press in the print studio and enjoys making small projects that she hand-prints at home. She draws inspiration from nature and iconic women.
