Our library will change back to regular hours in October, so no more evening hours after Columbus Day. So here at the library, we’d like to make the most of our September evenings and host 5 fun and non-intimidating craft classes for adults in our community. Space is limited–only 10 participants per class, so sign up today at the library or call us at (518)648-5444.
Class number four is Hand Carved Block Print Dish Towels. Apparently cool dish towels are a thing. Who knew? Each participant will take home a dish town of their own design. We will first talk about block printing in general and the types of designs that lend themselves to this technique. Then we will draw out some designs, and choose one to transfer to our carving block. We will learn the basic techniques for carving a linoleum block, then we’ll get to work carving. After the carving is finished, we will print our masterpiece onto a towel.
Please bring your sense of humor and experimentation, and please wear clothing that can suffer the odd splotch or dribble. If you wish to work up ideas for your design ahead of time, that’s great. Carving area will be approximately 3″x4″, so plan accordingly.
