Here is information for the block printing class I will be teaching on Saturday, April 7th.
What is block printing? First of all, it is a lot of fun! When you create a print block, you carve a design into a soft material and then print it on paper, fabric, wood…just about anything. You do not have to be able to draw well, nor do you have to be an artist. This technique will allow you to make your own cards, printed fabric, etc. The process I am going to teach can be easily replicated at home.
When is the class? Saturday, April 7th from 11am-4pm.
Where is the class? Community gathering room at St. John’s Episcopal Church in Franklin, NC. Here is the address: 542 Saint Johns Church Rd, Franklin, NC 28734. It is located in a lovely wooded setting and the room provides us enough room to spread out. I am happy to help with directions or just put the address into your GPS.
Cost and payment: The cost for the class is $35, it includes all of the materials you need for the class, the only thing you need to bring is a lunch. I will accept cash, a personal check, or Paypal payment. When you register, please indicate how you will pay.
How do I register? Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and indicate your interest. Please provide me with your name, telephone number and how you would like to pay.
What will the class be like? I will teach you how to create your design and transfer it to your print block. Then I will explain and demonstrate how to carve and print your block. We will print on cards, fabric, and paper. When you leave the class you will have your print blocks and everything you’ve created along with a materials list and directions. The goal is to have fun and learn something new…it will be a stress-free environment. I have been printmaking with adults and children for many years and it is a process that everyone seems to love. I hope you will join us!

Class is limited to 10 participants, so please register early!
