This one day workshop will introduce participants to monoprinting and block printing techniques through the creation of unique hand printed greeting cards. Working with water based inks and cotton rag paper, each participant will be guided through the process of designing and creating an overall pattern and design motif. These patterns and motifs can then be assembled in different and creative ways to fabricate at least six distinct and original prints on greeting card stationary. 

The processes involved include carving and printing a linoleum block and assembling a patterned image using various monoprinting techniques. The techniques learned in this workshop can be applied to at home studios (printing without a press) or to working on a press in a shared printmaking studio.
