About the event

Carve out a little time in your calendar for this upbeat intro to small block carving and printing by hand! In this workshop, experienced carver and hand-block printer LuAnne Holladay will review carving techniques + tools, guide you through designing and carving small blocks, introduce the use of ink pads and block-printing inks, and demonstrate how to simply and successfully transfer images onto your carving surface.

At the start of the session, guests will have the opportunity to practice printing with pre-carved blocks provided by the instructor. As the session progresses, you’ll be introduced to various carving tools and proper technique, resulting in the creation of your own carved images. With LuAnne’s guidance, you’ll engage in pattern creation and small-format printing. 

Attendees will not only enjoy special access to resources provided by Bloomington Fine Art Supply and the instructor but will depart with several on-paper explorations and a supply kit to continue practicing at home.

This workshop is sure to leave an impression – we look forward to hosting you!
