I’ve got some exciting news!
Starting next month, Duffy O’Connor and I will be co-teaching the relief printmaking class at Chicago Printmakers Collaborative. Duffy is full-time faculty at Harrington College of Design, where he teaches drawing, design fundamentals, and relief printmaking. He has been working with this process a lot longer than I have, so it is a real honor to teach alongside him.
For this class, we will be covering everything from single to multi-color relief prints on wood and linoleum, printing by both hand and press, transferring images, and much more. Here are the details:
Fundamentals of Relief Printmaking
Mondays, June 3 – July 22, 2013

Here we are working on a woodcut for the poster, which we designed and carved ourselves. We even printed some of the posters using handmade ink!
