Mission: Printmaking

Testprint1

Testprint1

I just came across this old test print and was delightfully reminded of my love of Printmaking.

In the past (specifically in college), I took a lot of printmaking classes…I’ve done woodcut, linoleum block, etching…as well as some additional classes in papermaking, bookbinding, & fibers as complements. I’ve really been craving a new class to get my hands dirty and remind me how fun it is to make prints… designing solely on the computer really numbs me sometimes. My new mission is to take a silkscreen class, fabric printing & letterpress class. I’ve missed the Fall deadline at the area art schools, but in January, it’s all about Mission: Printmaking. In the meantime, I’ll finally try and use my mini Gocco printer–and visit some of these great local Print Organizations in the area.
