Relief Printing with Ingrid Mayrhofer

Blockprinting workshop with local Crown Point resident, visual artist and print maker Ingrid Mayrhofer.

Using inspiration found along the Pipeline Trail, participants learned how to make their very own blocks to create prints. Block printing is a technique for creating text, images or patterns used widely throughout East Asia that originated in China as a method for printing on textiles and paper. Participants learned this simple technique and created their own custom made designs under the guidance of Crown Point artist Ingrid Mayrhofer.

Time: 1:30 – 4:30 pm
