Reduction Block Printing 101 at Hamilton on June 30

Sign up to join us for the one-day workshop at the Hamilton Wood Type & Printing Museum in Two Rivers, Wisconsin , “Reduction Block Printing 101 with Mary Bruno”. In this truly hands-on workshop, you’ll spend a day learning how to print a multi-color poster from one linoleum block, Mary Bruno’s specialty. Through a series of progressive carvings and press runs, the image emerges while the actual linoleum block is destroyed. Attendees will learn first-hand how to prepare artwork, transfer the artwork to linoleum, and the proper use of carving tools. At the end of the day you’ll be able to trade prints with your workshop mates and take a edition of your posters home. Feel free to bring an idea or simple sketch to be transferred onto 5”x7” linoleum block, then be prepared to get inky. All supplies and paper will be provided.

The cost is $125 per person with the museum providing materials and tools. Space is limited, so sign up early.
