About This Class

In this class we will cover all of the steps needed to create a multi-color print.  The registration method that you will learn is transferrable to any number of printing projects and can be used for prints with 2 colors to prints with 10 colors.  This course is perfect for printmakers who are looking to create their first multi-color block print and get started registering prints.  It is best for students who have some block printing experience. 

By the end of this class, I hope you will enjoy the process of registration and will be able to create multi-color masterpieces. Once you have practiced this technique a few times you will be a printmaking machine and you'll get a huge sense of satisfaction seeing your prints lined up perfectly.  

Let's get printing!
