In this class, we’ll be learning about the fundamentals of relief printing by carving simple stamps (with a spooky twist!) that we’ll use to build uniquely layered prints! We will get to know our carving tools and discuss essential linocutting techniques before creating our stamps.

As we carve, we’ll work on the consistency and confidence of our carving strokes. We’ll also learn stamp layering techniques that’ll help us create dynamic and expressive patterns!

When creating these prints, I encourage everyone to allow their instincts to guide them as they print their stamps and explore different mark making methods. This leaves us free to practice and explore in a casual low-pressure head space! There is truly no wrong way to approach the creation of these eccentric pieces, which is why they’ve become a staple in my sketchbooks.

My goal is for everyone to leave this class feeling comfortable with the carving process and more confident in their ability to employ the fundamentals that we’ll be learning. Additionally, I hope everyone finds the creative process as meditative and freeing as I do!

Join zoom 15 minutes early (4:45pm) for an informal meet and greet with the instructor and other class participants! Session instructions will begin promptly at 5:05pm PST so that everyone has plenty of time to join!
