Block printing is a popular printmaking technique that originated in China more than a thousand years ago. Traditionally, the artist carved an image in relief onto a block of wood, producing a “stamp” that could be painted with ink and pressed onto silk to produce a print. Today, printmakers still use blocks of wood, but sponges, foam, and linoleum are also popular materials for both hobby crafters and professional artists. Your original designs can be printed on paper, clothing, and other fabrics.
This workshop will be using linoleum to carve your image to use as your block for your nontoxic, water-based ink prints.
