Linocut Printmaking Workshop
Saturday, Sept 30, 1 - 4pm
Learn how to carve and hand print your very own linoleum block. This three hour workshop, led by Carmen McNall, will explore the basics of linoleum block carving and teach the skills to create an original print from start to finish. Each student comes away with the skills and take-home toolkit to continue their printmaking at home. This workshop is great as an introduction, or for those revisiting the process who are interested in learning how to linocut print at home.
Carmen McNall is a San Francisco based printmaker and installation artist. She uses the woodcut process in nontraditional ways to tell the stories of individuals from all over the world. Using the relationship of people and their environments, she creates a candid intimacy that connect us to each other. She is deeply moved by those who work with their hands, keeping alive the artifacts of humanity. She finds great importance in the passing down of trades from generation to generation, commanding a presence and pride as craft-makers and workers of dying traditions.
The materials fee of $25 is included in the class price. Each student is provided with a linoleum block, carving gouges, water based ink, a roller and paper.
Please arrive with a simple 4” x 6” drawing of the image you would like to carve into your linoleum block or inspiration and ideas for your print. There will also be templates available if you don’t have a planned image.

Intro to Woodworking Workshop
Sunday, Oct 15, 12 - 4pm
Learn how to work with wood through designing and building your own coasters. This four hour workshop, led by Willy Nicholas, will teach basic woodworking skills, tool safety, basic cutting, drilling, edge treatment, gluing, sanding and finishing. At the end of the workshop you will walk away with a set of handmade coasters and a stand for them all to fit on too. No prior experience needed.
Willy Nicholas is a craftsman who lives in San Francisco and specializes in lighting design and small batch home decor items. Much of his work is derived through a multidisciplinary approach that utilizes ink drawing and abstract composition. Using abstraction, Willy draws from his fascination with industrial structures including bridges, architecture and machinery. Willy also draws from natural structures such as cliffs, mountains and trees to inspire the compositions. He uses this process to create compelling forms that he can then transform into three dimensional creations. His work is propelled by his formal woodworking training at California College of the Arts.
Each student will be provided materials, covered by the $36 materials fee, which is included in the class price.
Please wear closed toed shoes and tie hair up if you have lengthy hair.
$130* - $140
