This is a continuing workshop for those who have taken an Introduction to Printmaking workshop with us.

Sketchbook Printmaking is a continuing series of Block Printing and Artists Books workshops led by Isabelle in your own home. Relax with an evening of carving and stamping, listening, connecting and sharing, every month.

These sessions is for anyone interested in expanding on printmaking skills, just starting printmaking, creative bookmaking and generally just want to get making. Be inspired to fill your print journals with stamp designs you have carved yourself.

Our sessions are filled with bursts of fun activities, moments of reflection...and most importantly making. Receive creative prompts so that in between meet ups, there will be plenty of time to gather inspiration and complete your projects.
