Come practice the art of Woodblock Printmaking with local artist Dan Law. Participants will have the opportunity to carve their own designs on locally salvaged maple blocks (8 x 6) using high quality woodcutting tools. They will use these to create a small run of prints using the artist’s custom made 24″ intaglio press with archival paper and inks. Space for 10 participants.
