Block Printing - Summer Library Workshop

Back by popular demand!  

All Ages are encouraged to attend this fantastic workshop!  Block printing is an ancient art that is still practiced today.  In this workshop we will work on thin pieces of foam and “carve” our images with ballpoint pens.  Then we will print onto card stock to make cards.​ We will also print onto a large piece of paper to form a "quilt" of everyone's designs.
