POSTPONED Letterpress Printed Lino cut Greeting Cards with Michelle Wiebe

March 16, 2020. At this time, we are postponing all art workshops through April 19, 2020. If you are currently registered for an art workshop between now and April 19, please watch your email inbox for a message over the next couple of days. We will be offering the opportunity to (a) receive a credit for future use, (b) convert your payment to a donation (with tax receipt) or (c) request a refund.

Learn the basics of linocut printmaking and using a tabletop letterpress to create one of a kind greeting cards. Students will learn all about how to compose a striking design, safe carving techniques as well as hand-printing basics. The students will then learn some of the fascinating histories of printing presses and have the chance to print their cards on an antique tabletop press. Participants will leave with a variety of hand printed projects, their own carved blocks as well as the skill to practice at home using basic art materials.

Excellent for beginner and intermediate linocut students.

 Here is what past participants have said about Michelle Wiebe's workshops:
