Mare Blocker was our instructor. She lives in Donnelly, Idaho and is a printmaker/book artist. She was a very fun teacher with lots of information. She also brought many of her own pieces to show as examples. Here are just a few.
These are all different types of printmaking by Mare Blocker, not just reduction linoleum printing.
This piece above is actually a book. It is laid out flat, but can be folded back up into a book. It then looks something like the picture below.
Here is a close-up of the hand stitching on the paper that Mare did for this piece.
Below is a set of prints that Mare did to celebrate the 16th anniversary of having her press. These are reduction linoleum cut prints in two colors. I think the set is really nice and is a good example of what can be done with just two colors.
This example is the cover of a book with different printing techniques along with hand stitching. I really like the colors of this piece, the stitching and the energy that the swirls create.
Tomorrow I'll post what I did in the workshop, which doesn't come near the quality of these.
