In this introductory-level class you will learn how to choose an image for relief printing, transfer an image to your block, carve, and print it by hand. You will go home with a lovely finished print and your carved block, ready to take on new printing projects.
Book artist and printmaker Megan Adie will be your expert instructor. This is a rare opportunity to learn relief printmaking from a great teacher on a lovely Saturday afternoon!
