Basics of Block Printing
with Monica Rico of Wood Thrush Farm
Sunday, Sept 22
In this workshop, Monica will discuss basic linoleum block carving techniques, tools, materials, and printing methods. Each participant will design and draw their own block, spend time carving it by hand with guidance from the instructor, ink and print, and leave with finished prints and cards to take home. You’ll leave with your finished block as well, so you’ll be able to print from it in the future! Monica will provide information on where to purchase block printing supplies, should you wish to continue practicing after the class. Cost of materials is included in course registration.
Monica Rico is a printmaker, barefoot farmer, and mother of boys at Wood Thrush Farm in Henniker, NH. She makes linocut relief prints on note cards, journals, various sized matted prints, clothing, and textiles. Her work is drawn directly onto linoleum blocks, carved by hand, and individually inked and hand-printed. Each print is an original work and each is slightly different from the next.
Simple Weaving with Melody Fulone
Thursday, Oct 3
Try your hand at simple tapestry weaving in this relaxing and creative workshop. Students will learn simple techniques such as stripes, fringes, ryan loops, and color changes, as well as finishing the woven piece. Yarn and looms will be provided, but you may bring your own yarn if you wish.
Melody is a graphic designer and textile artist living in southern New Hampshire. She grew up experimenting with all manner of fiber crafts, and currently works with a 36" floor loom to fulfill her textile dreams. When she's not weaving or knitting, she's probably working on a logo design for a client, baking bread, or making travel plans.
