Learn a new form of meditation by turning simple drawings into gorgeous block prints.
For me, the focus and concentration required to hand-carve the rubber block is very therapeutic and I love that afterward I end up with a block (stamp) that can be used to make multiple copies and individually unique artworks. It’s a great process that allows you to keep some and share others with family and friends.
Blocking printing is a versatile process that can be done at home without a lot of space or an expensive Printing Press. You’ll learn how to turn any image into a bold design full of contrast and pattern as I guide you through every step from the initial design to the finished product. Take your inspiration from Nature (images supplied) or you are welcome to bring images on another topic. Remember, you will be able to use your block again and again at home and you’ll have the skills to produce Artist prints, unique greeting cards or bespoke stamps for your other Art projects.
If you were lucky enough to have made a linocut at school, you will truly enjoy re-engaging with this printmaking process and taking it to a whole new level.
By the end of the session, you’ll have a finished artwork ready to frame and a hand-carved block to keep and re-use.
Whether you’re expanding your Art repertoire or an absolute beginner, you’ll be guided and supported a little or a lot depending on your wishes, with honest advice and feedback.
Learn to breathe, relax and carve!
(Like in life, it’s time to carve away the parts that are not needed and keep the parts you like?)
