Course Description

Relief printmaking has countless applications for illustration and book arts, but it can often require expensive equipment, dangerous solvents, and lots of studio space. In this workshop, printmaker and book artist Hannah Batsel will present three methods for relief printmaking at home using solvent-free materials and a small tabletop press — or even just a wooden spoon. She will also show some of her own artist books to demonstrate how the techniques we learn can be used in handmade book projects. Attendees will leave with a lino-cut print they pull in the demo as well as the knowledge to make their own prints at home.
One session: $95/$85/50. Led by Hannah Batsel.
