Print Jams workshops in April! Relief & Screenprinting for beginners


Relief (Sat April 12, 1-4pm)
Learn the basics of relief printmaking with an introduction to carving tools, wood and linoleum blocks, inking, and printing using Zenzic’s etching press and sign press.
Screenprinting (Sat April 19, 1-4pm)
Learn the basics of burning, printing, and cleaning screens using the photoemulsion process. Information on the numerous possibilities for stencil-making will be provided but not covered in depth.

Each workshop is limited to 4 students and costs $25, including materials. Workshops will give participants the minimum training necessary to use the relief printing or screenprinting equipment at Zenzic during our Open Studios and, more importantly, empower them to learn and experiment with printmaking.
