Michael Merry: Woodblock Printing

Saturday and Sunday July 17 & 18, 2021 

10am-4pm both days. 

Students will complete a simple two color woodblock print. Michael Merry will teach the processes of transferring the image, registration, carving, and printing. The design should be simple to be completed in a weekend. Participants will carve a 6x8 shina plywood block and print on paper. Participants will also carve and print some small abstract designs to learn the process and enjoy a spontaneous printing experience. This will be a multi block print process rather than a reduction process. Blocks, paper, and ink will be provided. Carving tools will be available for studio use. 

Registration is $135 including supplies.
