Class: Learn to Carve and Print With Your Own Unique Stamp on Saturday, December 14th from 1:00-3:00 pm
Join Madison based artist Karli Didrickson to learn the basic principles of relief printmaking!
Participants will learn how to create and carve an image of their choice into a synthetic rubber block (linocut), then learn how to ink and print their image using traditional relief printmaking tools and techniques. You will have the choice to making a custom canvas project bag or zippered notions pouch!
Learn to carve and print your own unique stamp.
Create customized hand stamped goods.
No experience necessary. In fact, it’s preferred!
Enjoy a small group setting for personal attention.
Karli has a BFA from UW-Madison and is the owner and artist behind Chickadiddy.
Participants will be provided carving tools, instruction, and ink to use during the class, and will take home their original hand carved stamp for additional future use. Each participant will also receive a cotton canvas tote bag or zipper pouch to print on and take home. If you are fresh out of funky ideas for your stamp, no worries! There will be plenty of fun images provided to get you started.
What we need from you?
You are welcome to bring your own additional blank items (stationery, baby onesie, t-shirt...) to print on during the class. Any paper goods or fabric item with a flat/tight weave (i.e. cotton, silk, jersey, flannel, polyester…) will work. It may get messy, so wear clothing you do not mind getting stained. Because we will be using sharp carving tools participants must be 14 years or older.
