The Center for Contemporary Printmaking in Norwalk offers a two-day workshop, "Multi-Color Woodblock Printing," 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, Jan. 22-23.
The course introduces students to multiple-block prints including block registration methods and color layering, brayer inking techniques, and printing on the press. A great workshop for those with some carving experience who want to further their skills or anyone who needs more help with multi-color printing.
