Block Printing Workshop

Tuesday, July 24 | Malletts Creek | 6:30-8:30pm |Grades 6-Adult

In this workshop you will create a design, carve the design into a soft linoleum block, and then print the image onto paper or note cards. This is your chance to create something to hang on your wall, or perhaps design a card to send out.

We will supply all the tools necessary, you supply the creativity! If you have something you’d like to print on, or have your own tools, feel free to bring them. Check out some of AADL’s books on block printing for a spark of ideas.

This DIY event is for Grades 6- Adult, and takes place at the Malletts Creek Branch on Tuesday, July 24, from 6:30-8:30pm. See you there!


Block Printing... Sounds fun. :)

I hope so! We have all sorts of great paint colors and paper colors to make your designs pop.

I want to try, sounds so fun!! Really awesome!!

I really want to go but there is a laser thing and I really want to go to the laser engraving thing.

Is the laser thing from AADL?

Oh, yeah, I saw it. :)

laser thing?

Cool! I remember going to this event last year. I hope I can go again this year! :D

Same here! I'm going to see if I can drag my neighbors along this time. :)

This sounds like a really fun event! I hope I can go!

Seems fun


Too bad I can't go.... :(

Sounds like real fun

Ugh, how did a spammer get a library account? The four comments above this one are all spammish.

I went to the workshop and had a great time! Your carving tools are in much better shape than the ones at the art center (theirs are all dull).

Somehow I didn't get a comment form, though, so I wanted to make one suggestion: have some way to clean off fingers in the work room (e.g. wet washcloths, spray bottle for the paper towels, something like that). And maybe some battens for better print quality.

camelsamba, I'm glad you came and that you had a great time!

I also thought we needed a spray bottle in the room last night. It's for sure on my list for future print programs. I usually bring one for screen printing programs, but it would come in handy for block printing, too.

Thank you for attending the program and for offering feedback!
