Creating Your Own Prints Without A Press

In this workshop, we will learn the techniques of carving our own designs using rubber carving blocks and printing them using water-soluble inks. These prints can then be used in a variety of ways…framed, notecards, books, etc.

First, I will introduce the materials for carving. I will offer some tips on transferring or drawing your images to the block, how to most accurately carve your image, and avoid mistakes in preparing your block for printing.

Once the blocks are carved, I will demonstrate and how to apply the inks to the blocks, placing your paper properly and transferring your image accurately.

I will also share some examples of how I have used my images in my personal work.
