Participants are typically shown a variety of contemporary and historic prints as examples at the beginning of the workshop. Everyone then moves into carving and printing their own designs to become familiar with the tools and materials unique to this process. At the end of the session, there’s the option of people trading with one another. The goal is to be enriched and to have fun.
