Dive into block printing at South Street Seaport Museum's Bowne Printers.
In this 3 hour workshop Resident Printer Ali Osborn will teach you the basics of carving and printing linoleum blocks. Arrive with a couple of ideas for images and we'll teach how to transfer and carve your design out of the surface of linoleum. After designs are carved we'll ink and print by hand. At the end of the class we'll pull some prints of everyone's blocks locked up together. Each student will go home with their block, individual prints, and a limited edition poster of everyone's designs together, pulled from our vintage Vandercook press.
All materials supplied, except for your ideas-you bring those and we'll show you how to make them into prints!
