Book Plate Class

6:00 pm

Make a handprinted bookplate and learn the art of carving linoleum. Learn from a brief history of linocut art both past and present. Bring sketches, keeping it simple and loose (drawing with a Sharpie helps.) Explore printing with different types of ink and paper. Finished prints will be about 4×2 1/2″. Participate in a print exchange so we will end up a variety of bookplates in the end.

Shannon Buck is a Portland printmaker with over a decade of printing experience. She loves yummy, luscious ink the color of candy, and operates under the name Loaded Hips Press.
