Get into plein air printmaking with Carol McQuaid!
Come and learn the basic steps to creating a relief print! We’ll learn about how to design, transfer and safely carve a linocut block. We’ll talk about printing techniques for the studio, the kitchen table, and how to take your printmaking outside. We’ll look at some effective ways to get multicolour prints, even when you’re working quickly outside. The morning demonstration requires registration, however the afternoon demonstration is a pop-up, so feel free to come by anytime during the time period!
