A Virtual Workshop!
In this workshop, students will have the opportunity to learn block printing start to finish: concept, sketch, carving, and printing. They will learn the skills and techniques to create successful block print designs, and ways to carry on and advance their practice at home if desired. Students will leave with a small series of prints they created and the block they carved.
Registration closes August 15, 2020 to allow time for students to purchase their materials. With your registration you'll receive the full materials list (with helpful links) to purchase your items, any helpful handouts about the process, as well as a quick 1-page "how-to" on downloading and using the Zoom video app.
PLEASE NOTE: All workshops will be recorded for Pyramid Atlantic's private use to better optimize our programming and share as examples for funders. You may mute your microphone or turn off your camera if you do not wish to be recorded.
