If you have ever felt you would like to try block printing or if you are just curious, this presentation is for you.

Starting with an explanation of traditional block printing methods, this class will then move beyond to explore the joys of varied editions and nontraditional printing. There will also be a demonstration of the mysterious “reduction print” (How does one get all those colors and patterns out of just ONE block?) Come and find out!

timeless by Judith Hilmer "Profusion" Block Print 18" x 36" (Detail)

Judith Hilmer has emerged from a background of scientific illustration and commercial art. Her work with "botanically correct" flora for natural history museum dioramas has led her from Alaska to Africa. She has earned signature memberships in the Colorado Watercolor Society and the Kansas Watercolor Society while five of her serigraphs have taken awards in Tokyo, Japan.

Her block printing is done with water base inks and without a press. Almost as much about painting as printing, these works fall into the category of "varied editions". Her skill as a painter is seen in her use of ink, with much shading, glazing and texture. The non-traditional methods and the ever-changing results keep the work fresh and always exciting for the artist.
