Block Printmaking Workshop

Museum of Vancouver, 1100 Chestnut St, Vancouver, BC V6J 3J9, Canada map

Design your own block print cards in this instructional workshop that includes carving, colour mixing and a lesson about Coast Salish artists use of negative and positive space!

Artist Atheana Picha of Kwantlen First Nation will guide you through block print making techniques to create your own designed cards. Using safety cut blocks you will carve designs that will produce lovely prints on blank cards. Participants should also anticipate mixing their own ink colours, providing unique and creative ways to highlight your beautiful designs. Each participant will leave with a set of cards and new found appreciation for Coast Salish use and execution of negative and positive spaces in their art practice. Participants do not require previous experience in block printing or in ink design.
