Thursday, October 27, 5:00pm - 6:30pm PST

In this class, we will be using a mixture of stamping tools and block printing techniques to build unique and expressive landscapes layer by layer. Together we will explore how simple shapes can be combined to form eccentric nature scenes with depth and personality! We will test different ink application methods and maybe discover new ones together! These tests will help us understand how we can use our ink pads to manipulate the color, texture, and perspective of our scenes.

After carving our landscapes out of rubber blocks and learning about ink application, we will print our landscapes! My goal is for you to leave this class with an amazing stampscape as well as a mixture of block printing and stamping basics that you will be able to explore further and incorporate into your own practice!

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!

SUGGESTED MATERIALS

• Craft knife
• Rubber carving block - Speedball and blick have great options. Choose the thinnest block possible (ideally 1/4”) as this will make cutting easier.
• Pencil
• Black pens - Will be used for adding detail at the end. I use Microns and Kuretake pens.
• Ink pads - At least 3 colors. Mine are Yellow Owl ink pads.
• Paper towels - Just a couple needed for creating texture.
• Paper -  Smoother paper is preferable.
• Cutting mat or other appropriate cutting surface
• Wash cloth / paper towels and water - For wiping ink from carving block so we can use our stamp multiple times.
• Optional: reference photo and white pen/marker for adding highlights at the end.
