Block Printing Live Online Workshops

#SimplyBlockprinting - Block printing workshops with Ali of 3dottedpenguins

Ever wanted to try block printing or improve your block printing or stamp making skills? In this live online workshops I will walk you through the basics of block printing.

To fill the current gap of in-person workshops I decided to offer a virtual live block printing workshop via a video call (via Zoom) to best emulate the experience of an in-person workshop and also be able to give you direct feedback if you decide to work along.

 

I currently offer two different 3 hour workshops and two 3 part workshop series (that build upon each other): the entry level workshop #SimplyBlockprinting – Intro to Block Printing in English (as well as dedicated session ins German, called #SimplyBlockprinting – Einführung in Stempeldruck (in German)). I also run a bit more advanced level workshop #SimplyBlockprinting – Intro to Repeat Patterns (currently in English only). If you want to dive deep into repeat patterns, the 3 part workshops series #SimplyBlockprinting – Repeat Pattern Deep Dive 1 and the follow up series #SimplyBlockprinting – Repeat Pattern Deep Dive 2 is for you.

 

#SimplyBlockprinting – Intro to Block Printing: We will be spending 3 hours together where I will walk you through the process of block printing. We will cover everything you need to know to get started with block printing: we will be talking about tools and materials, what to consider when making your designs, how to carve and print. We will finish this workshop with Q&A session where I will answer your questions that I had not been able to already answer throughout the workshop/demo time. This is an entry level workshop. Bring your tools to work alongside or get inspired for your block printing session afterwards.

 

#SimplyBlockprinting – Intro to Repeat Patterns: In this 3 hour workshop I will walk you through the process of making a repeat pattern, starting from what types of repeat patterns there are, what to consider when making the design, to carving and making and aligning the individual block impressions. There is plenty of time to answer your questions. This is a bit more advanced workshop and for those who have prior carving experience (we are not going to be covering the block printing basics such as tool handling/how to start carving in this repeat pattern workshop).

#SimplyBlockprinting – Repeat Pattern Deep Dive 1 Workshop series: In this 3 times 2-hour workshop series, we will be diving deep into designing a block from idea to sketch (with a repeat pattern in mind) and looking into different repeat pattern types and block shapes in detail and how they can be applied to block printing. There will be tips and tricks and specific exercises to bring your carving skills to the next level. We will be printing repeat patterns and will be working with color in our repeat patterns or block prints in general. This is a bit more advanced workshop and for those who have prior carving experience (we are not going to be covering the block printing basics such as tool handling/how to start carving in this Deep Dive workshop). I structure the workshop series in a way that you can attend it with or without previously attending the “Intro to Repeat Patterns” workshop. This is the first part of the Deep Dive workshop series.

#SimplyBlockprinting – Repeat Pattern Deep Dive 2 Workshop series: The Deep Dive 2 is also workshop series spanning three 2-hour workshops. Deep Dive 2 builds upon Deep Dive 1 (which means that Deep Dive 1 is a prerequisite to taking Deep Dive 2. Please take Deep Dive 1 first). 

 

When I offer a specific workshop in English and German, the content and length of both workshops are the same, only the language and of course the date where it takes place differ.

I try to offer my workshops during different times of the day to accommodate different timezones.
