In this fun, hands-on half-day workshop participants will dive into a traditional method of printmaking: block printing. Join us to design, sketch, hand-carve, and print your own original designs. Learn the ins and outs of the tools, techniques, and ink application process. Experiment with colour, detail, and positive and negative space. At the end of the day, each participant will leave with multiple finished prints and their carved block, with the know-how to keep printmaking at home!

MATERIAL COST: $10.00 to be paid to the instructor on the day of the workshop.
