What you'll do

I'll walk you through the history of printmaking and give an overview of relief printmaking today. I'll share tools, materials, and design principles for creating a one-color block print. I'll help you to design, carve, and ink your very own printmaking block. We will cover best practices for using the carving tools as well as different techniques to achieve lines, shape, and texture. You will complete and sign your own edition of prints made from your block.

Learn more about Hannah

Hannah

I'm a self-taught printmaker, designer, and artist. After more than 10 years of developing my graphic design career, I took up printmaking as a creative outlet away from the computer screen. I now teach my craft and exhibit my prints across Oregon. I'm excited to share the wide world of relief printmaking with artists and novices of all levels and backgrounds.

What's included

Drinks
Complementary local beer/wine/tea selection.
Equipment
I provide everything needed for printmaking- Block for carving, carving tools, ink, and paper.

Where you'll be

I host my workshops out of my own retail and community space, The Shape Council. This space serves as a shop to highlight emerging Portland artists and makers. Located in the historic district of Kenton, my shop serves as a jumping off point to explore the growing North Portland neighborhood.

More tips

Be sure to wear clothes that are conducive to an ink-filled night. All ink we will be using is washable, but it's good not to wear anything too precious.
