Reflect on the change of season to hibernation, quiet and recharging by examining fallen leaves to admire their complex structure and natural beauty. Students can ink up fallen leaves and hand press them into their print block, then carve the leaf’s image as a permanent stamp or choose from woodsy designs like birch trees, pines, trees with bare-branches or bring your own mirror-image, black and white design at 4 x 5 inches to create your custom stamp.
Students will learn to trace a design, carve a stamp, roll up ink, and print on paper and fabric. Learn to carve, test print, print on paper, then scrap fabric, ultimately creating a custom drawstring bag and flower sack towel. Bring a shirt or scarf if you want to print on it during the class. We will roll up black fabric ink and use multiple permanent ink stamp pads.
Those new to Printmaking can learn the basics, while folks with some experience can aim to create more complex or two-part designs.
