Workshop: Unorthodox Block Printing Primer w/ Scott Minzy


Harlow Gallery presents a two part workshop Fast, Cheap and Easy: an Unorthodox Block Printing Primer”, lead by Scott Minzy.  The printmaking workshop is 7-9pm on Tuesdays and is split into two 4-week sessions.

The first 4-week session is February 14, 21, 28 and March 7 (Registration for the first session has CLOSED.) The second 4-week session is scheduled for March 14, 21, 28 and April 4. (This session is now FULL/WAITLIST only.) Tuition per session is $50 for KVAA/Harlow Gallery members or $60 for non-members (paid to Harlow Gallery) plus a $25 supplies fee (paid directly to instructor on the day of the event.) 

Learn the technique behind creating bold and striking prints in a class suitable for all levels of experience. We will explore design principles of relief images, carving techniques, inking, and printing. Participants will have the experience of working with foam, rubber, wood and linoleum blocks learning the different qualities of each material. Most importantly this class will teach participants how to print at home without a press. These easily printed blocks make great postcards, propaganda posters, subversive illustrations and of course, fine art prints.

  1. Love this work and did love doing this kind of work way back. Can I sign up for your class which starts tomorrow? I live on an island so a bit complicated but I have a close friend I can stay with overnights in Augusta. I will call to see if there’s a spot for me.

  2. Hi Deb – Quick question. Heard the weather tomorrow might turn nasty with snow, ice,etc. When (or how) would the gallery let folks know if the class is postponed/cancelled. Might not be able to make it due to small car (i.e not great in snow).
