Demo: Claire Emery Makes Woodblock Prints

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Claire Emery, the Missoula artist who created the 10-Year Anniversary prints for Hank & John, will introduce the fair and forgotten art of reproducing images using carved blocks. 

Using woodblocks to disseminate information was the high technology of its time beginning with the invention of Gutenberg's printing press in the 1440s. Since we have digital technologies now, why use woodcuts in a digital world?

In the 2:30 session, Claire will demonstrate how she carves, prints and paints the puppy-sized elephant block.

In the 4:00 session, Claire will demonstrate how she carves, prints and paints the Anglerfish block.
