Block printing is one of the oldest types of printmaking and has been used for

surface embellishment for thousands of years. There are many techniques, but the

process uses a carved material that has been coated in ink to transfer its carved

image onto paper or fabric. Resulting prints can be simple or intricate – but since

the blocks are carved by hand, the printed images are often bold and distinctive.

In this workshop you will choose your materials, draw your own design, transfer

your design onto your block, carve your design into the block surface, apply

colour and proof your block by making several test prints. You will have the

opportunity to make several print blocks and print with them using a variety of

block print techniques.

Participants are encouraged to bring any block printing materials they may already

own – the instructor will provide shared cutting tools, rubber eraser blocks, print

media (inks, pigments, paints, brushes, tools) and oodles of inspiration! Please

bring 100% cotton fabric and/or a variety of papers to print on. A complete

materials list will be forwarded to confirmed workshop participants closer to the

workshop date. Kit fee of $10 payable to the instructor on workshop day.

Your instructor: Siri McCormick
