This three-day weekend workshop will provide the opportunity to discover the beauty of geometry in relief printmaking.  Participants will create relief prints that explore the potential of geometric shapes in image building. You will carve simple to more complex geometric shapes in each block using stencils and print them in different compositions and colors.  

Emphasis will be given to texture, rotation, positive and negative shapes, value and color, paper choice, transparency, and basic relief techniques including image transfer on the block, carving, inking and  multiple color block printing.

The workshop will include demonstrations, hands-on activities, group and one-on-one discussion.  It is open to all levels and does not require a press.
