Block Printing

DATE/TIME: TBA

COST: $100 includes GST, PST and all materials

Join us for an introduction into the wonderful world of Block Printing! In this workshop, you'll learn what makes an effective image, how to transfer it to a rubber block, how to carve it safely, and finally how to print onto paper.

Participants will then be printing their image onto their own Moleskine cahier notebook and some greeting cards. And maybe some other fun things!

And now for the fine print ...

THE FINE PRINT

Please bring several black & white images that you would like to try to carve and print. At least one should be a fairly simple line-type drawing, but we'll discuss them all (including how to simplify a more complicated one) and you can decide which one you'd like to carve. Maximum size is 4"x5.25"

 

The workshop is 3 hours, but there's a lot to talk about before we start carving, never mind printing!

Payment is due in advance. We can accept credit card via phone, or e-transfer to admin@qa-w.ca, or you can pay in person at the shop. Your spot is not confirmed until full payment is received.

Artist Trading Cards

FOURTH THURSDAY OF THE MONTH
5:30-7:30PM
WESTVIEW BOWLING
** FAMILY FRIENDLY **

Do you know about Artist Trading Cards? Whether you do or don't, we hope you'll join us for ATC nights with host Harvey Chometsky.

 

In short, Artist Trading Cards are self-made unique works or small series, signed and dated on the reverse by the artist/producer, exchanged and collected by the people who participate in this collaborative event. There are only 2 "rules": the cards must be 2.5"x3.5" (the same as modern hockey cards or baseball cards), and they are only to be traded, not sold.

Make them ahead of time, or make them on the spot. We'll bring some blanks and other art supplies.

And this is a family-friendly event!
