From Block to Book: Woodcut Printing for an Artist’s Book with Karen Kunc
Join book artist and master printmaker for an intensive, hands-on workshop. Participants will print color reduction woodcut images that become the pages of a hand bound accordion book.

This hands-on workshop, a partnership between BIMA and BARN, goes from printing color reduction woodcut images that become the pages of a hand bound accordion book. The goal is for each participant to create their own artist book that generates a multilevel sensory experience, while being inspired by master printmaker Karen Kunc, who opens the creative process with insightful mentoring. Concepts for invention and good fun will be directed in a collaborative atmosphere.
