What you'll learn in this block printing class:

Learn the ancient technique of block printing and go home with a whole new skill to continue exploring on your own! In this class we will learn how to carve and print by hand from rubber and linoleum blocks, following the traditional form of printmaking.

Come prepared to learn, explore, and have fun with the endless possibilities of printmaking. Bring your ideas, drawings, inspiration images, or just come as you are ready to experiment and enjoy. By the end of the session, participants will have garnered the basic tools and resources to continue exploring and making prints at home.

No experience necessary; this class is particularly geared towards those who would not necessarily consider themselves artists, but want to learn a new skill and be surprised by how they can make beautiful art.

An additional materials fee of $20 (payable in cash at the workshop)

Enrollment subject to availability.

Attended: DIY Silkscreening

The instructor was pleasant, informative and very patient. I look forward to my next visit.


Attended: Old Masters Oil Painting

Great Session - hands on with great feedback class allowed me to paint and get realtime feedback on what I am seeing and trying to convey on the canvas. Excellent experience.


Attended: Encaustic

The time was spent 50% learning about the process and 50% working on my own art. The teaching was expert—detailed with demonstrations. All in all---a great learning opportunity that was also a lot of fun.


Attended: DIY Silkscreening

This was a very informative, interesting class. The instructor was extremely well versed in home screening and carefully guided us through the steps of silkscreening. We all produced a good screen and printed on bags. Great class- but wear clothes you don't mind getting messy.


Attended: Blockprinting

The class was great. Fun, informative, and interesting. Approachable and helpful instructor too.


Attended: Bookmaking

Very meditative and interesting


Attended: DIY Silkscreening

I really enjoyed this course. Erik has a deep understanding of the process and materials, and shared that knowledge with us fluidly. He set the class up where each of us can go out and practice silkscreening on our own outside the class.


Attended: Encaustic

This was a great introduction to encaustic. Teacher was friendly and informative.Left me excited to continue painting with this medium. I will come back soon for more!

Sarah the teacher was very patient and was able to describe the process of creating a book in a manner that was easy to follow. It helped that it was a super small class, but I would definitely recommend this class with Sarah and am super pleased with my finished product!

Meredith is a terrific teacher. She is full of enthusiasm and support. But at the same time offers a lot of good technical skill instruction. I enjoyed the class very much and would happily take another with her.

Attended: 5 Sessions in Watercolor

Alison was a great teacher, very friendly and willing to help. I do wish that she did demos before each lesson so students can learn brush and color mixing techniques so that we can apply learnings immediately. Overall, I enjoyed the variety of things we painted in class and the course did enhance my understanding of watercolor.


Attended: DIY Silkscreening

Very nice and helpful instructor. Would been better if we got instructions on how to prepare our silkscreen designs before the class. Many of us had images that were too big for the screen size and had to run to a Staples to adjust and reprint our designs onto acetate (some of us were not able to do so due to file issues, etc)

Attended: 5 Sessions in Watercolor

Really good class - came in with basically no watercolor experience and really came out knowing enough to practice and get better on my own. Allison is great at giving tips and information while creating a loose, positive atmosphere where you don't need to feel bad if a particular painting doesn't turn out well. Sadly I think it's too expensive for me to take the class again to try to improve in a classroom setting with guidance, especially as there's no intermediate level.
