Mothers Day Block Printing Workshop
Join us in creating a custom gift for the Mother in your life!
We’ll have muralist and block print artist Holly Ka’iakapu from @theHKexperience to guide you in carving your very own design on a linoleum block. You will then learn the process of using the block to print on a greeting card and a tea towel. Go home with these unique personalized gifts made by you, your newly hand carved block, and a new skill to continue creating art!
Tools and supplies will be provided. Please bring a design for your 4"x 6" block. These can be in the form of a sketch, print out, or free hand. Designs should be simple, with thick lines, and must be mirrored.
