Learn to print unique monotype prints on the etching press using found objects and painting with ink. We’ll use these prints as pages for artist books, which are objects of beauty and content. You’ll learn a few simple book binding methods including pamphlets, accordions and folded structures. Finally, we’ll draw, write and/or collage into our books!

Learn to carve and print designs into a linoleum block to create a relief surface. We’ll begin by carving background patterns, which we’ll print in various colors and combinations. Then, we’ll carve a strong final image to print overtop the patterns. You’ll learn about design, carving techniques, printing and paper selection and finish the class with several completed prints.
