Block Printing with a Steam Roller: Making a Neighborhood Image for a Steamroller Print Event

Brian Counihan |

In this 90-minute workshop, artist and educator Brian Counihan will guide a collaborative woodblock design project that can be printed as a giant banner-sized image using a steamroller as a press. In this workshop we’ll collectively develop the visual content, consider how the banner can have a positive effect on the neighborhood, and think about how and where the banner-sized image can be displayed. Every neighborhood has something important to say, and banner-sized prints are loads of fun. They also draw lots of attention, especially when they’re printed with a steamroller!

Participants: 10 to 20
Ages: All
Value: $600.00
Requirements: Please provide a room with lots of table space, ideally with one or two big tables that everyone can gather around. Prepare to reach out to a wide range of voices from across the neighborhood. We want all ages to participate!
