Enjoy a Saturday afternoon at the Raymond Farm Center exploring woodblock printing. This workshop will be led by artist Ananda Connolly, who will guide participants through the basics of relief printing. We will start with designing and drawing an image, continue with transferring the image to the wood block and carving to obtain contrasts, and finally to each participant printing their own miniature edition. Special attention will be placed on paper type and selection, equipment use, and hand printing.

We will be using shina or birchwood blocks, water based inks, and Japanese wood cutting tools. Inspiration for image design can be drawn from the Raymond Farm itself, but participants are equally encouraged to use their own memories, drawings, and photographs. And, of course, you may take your artwork and tools home with you at the end of the workshop!
