All ages (11 and up) No experience necessary

Printmaking is a fun, quick way to create a whole set of hand-made, unique images in one art-making session, which makes it perfect for holiday cards! Whether you are planning to hand out or send Valentine’s Day cards, or just want to get messy* making art, printmaking is a great choice.  The simple printmaking technique you will learn in this class requires no special equipment and a minimum of supplies, so it’s a great introduction to printmaking, too.

*We will be using easy-to-clean ink 🙂

Supplies:

  • 1-3 colors of water-soluble block printing ink  (This kind). 
  • Water-soluble Ink retarder
  • Blank cards with a smooth surface (not textured or watercolor), like this one.
    • If you’re handing out cards in person (we can hope), any smooth, heavy paper works well–even unlined notecards
    • Any type of small-medium paintbrush           
  • Re-usable items you can probably find around the house:
    • You will need a piece of glass or smooth, flat plastic at least 8×10″. The glass from a frame works great.
    • You will also need either a second piece of glass/plastic, or a pile of newspaper or newsprint to keep your work surface clean.
    • A rag or plenty of paper towel
    • An art apron or old T-shirt
    • Something with a sharp tip: pin, awl, tweezers, etc.
    • A spoon
    • A plastic card–like a gift card or credit card
    • Scissors
  • Flat, textured materials to cut up: 
    • Lace scraps
    • Sturdy textured paper
    • Heavy fabric
    • Plastic screen
    • Feathers
    • Wood veneer
    • Any other sturdy, flat, textured material you don’t mind cutting up.
