Sudwerk AiR – March 2024

Come try the ancient art of printmaking in a casual environment with a pint and a pal. Students will learn how to transfer one of many provided designs (leaves, flowers, skulls, tarot, mushrooms, and beer-themes) into their print block, then carve the image as a permanent stamp and print the design. All printmaking designs, tools, and materials provided PLUS a Sudwerk pint.

You may bring your own mirror-image, black and white design at 4 x 5 inches to create your custom stamp. Bring your own t-shirt or fabric to print upon as you like.

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.
