Let's Get Inky! Large Format Relief Printing

  • IS Projects 17 Northwest 5th Street Fort Lauderdale, FL, 33301 United States (map)

Sunday,  October 1  12 - 5pm and Sunday,  October 15  12 - 5pm

Relief Printing is the oldest form of printmaking. This course is designed to teach students how to "think print" while carving away at an MDF block, then how to use that block to make multiple prints and how to layer images on top of one another

Students will work with a 20x20" block in class and will be sent home with a 40x40" block to prepare for the SPF'17 Steamroller Printing Extravaganza on November 11th from noon to 6pm. All students enrolled in this class are also invited to participate in the steamroller event free of charge.  

Students will get a sense of how it feels to work in a communal space surrounded by artists with similar interests. Students will also learn how to use and respect a large fine art press. Students will leave the class with a working knowledge of shop etiquette, linoleum carving, and printing techniques as well as a small portfolio of prints and their own MDF block. 

This class will certify you to reserve and use our etching press during open studio hours.
