relief carved blocks of wood or linoleum
Nothing beats the feeling of pulling your first test print from a block you've carved yourself. Seeing your image/design in stark relief, noticing the texture and line inherent to the carved block and knowing you can print as many as you want! I will teach you to go from an idea (or a picture) to finished print including such steps as transferring your design to the block, carving your design, inking your block, registering your block on your paper, and how to achieve a good print each time. I provide all the equipment and materials, all you need is some creativity and a sense of adventure!
