Woodblock printing is one of the oldest printing techniques used for artistic expression.
It is a simple way to make unique and replicable prints.
This workshop will teach you how to make your first woodblock print, from carving the wood board, to hand printing an edition of your work.
Join Emilie for a fun session exploring this technique and create your own unique woodblock print.
If you have an idea or an image you would like to work on, feel free to bring reference photos or a drawing.
