Relief Printing Workshops

 Relief printing is a technique in which the printing surface is carved away so that the image alone appears raised on the surface. The carved block is then inked and the image is transferred onto paper or fabric. I find carving and printing with linoleum to be a meditative and physical process that yields beautiful rewards. This fun and easy art form requires very few inexpensive supplies and offers endless creative possibilities.
