About This Class

Love the look of block printing? It's an art that's been around for literally thousands of years. In no time at all, you can learn the ropes and immortalize your favorite pet in the process.

In this Intro to Block Printing, we'll go over the process and the tools, and then we'll try out our skills by carving rubber blocks. You'll end up with an image of your favorite furry, fishy or feathered friend that you can print onto a pack of postcards.

Send them out to mark the holidays or just show off your new skills! After this intro class, you'll be ready to move into more advanced forms of block printing.
