Spend the afternoon learning the simple and satisfying art of hand block printing. This technique is perfect for creating bold and clean designs and the readily available tools and non-toxic inks make it an easy method for printing at home. At the end of the workshop, you'll leave with your own designed and carved rubber block, a set of cards with your designs, and the skills to explore this centuries-old method on your own.

About the Artist:
Amy Torgeson is an artist working in printmaking and collage. She loves the collaborative relationship between both methods; printmaking provides material for collage, and the layering and multi-dimensional qualities of collage make their way back into her printmaking. Her studio practice is focused on process and experimentation and she likes to see evidence of the process in the final work. “I’m hoping to capture a sense of being in the middle of things, of coming upon a work when there’s still potential, when the thing is still alive and unfinished. That’s the most exciting moment to me, when I’m in the middle of making.” Amy loves stories, writing and words but was ultimately a frustrated writer. Her love of typography (the shapes not the nomenclature) serves as an important starting point for much of her work. Amy spent ten years teaching writing and art to college students, with arts organizations and in after school programs. Today, she hosts art workshops in her studio in Sausalito, providing an intimate space for creative flow and connection. She lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with her husband and two children.
