Midwest Mermaid





SATURDAY, JULY 21st 3:00 pm – 5:00 PM

Join me for a fun 2 hour beginner blockprint workshop! No experience necessary! Rubber block will already have floral illustration on it. Over the first 1.5 hours I will walk you through step by step how to carve the design and where you can take your own creative liberties to make it your own. The last 1/2 hour we will ink, press, & print your individual block 3 times for you to take home ready to frame!

A few specifics:

  • Rubber block to carve is 3"x5" and will be printed in black ink on white 5"x7" paper

  • It's not a super messy process, but don't wear your Sunday best just in case. Space will be warm (not air conditioned) so make sure you are comfortable.

  • In addition to your 3 prints, you will also take home your carved block so you can make millions more prints on your own.

  • Carving tools will be provided during workshop (but will not go home with you).

  • I will have light snacks and bottled water but feel free to bring your own beverages.

  • Workshop is held in the X Space at 400 West Rich. Gated parking lot will be open off of Rich Street to park in and entrance to X Space is right there.

  • Arrive 15 minutes early to get settled, pour a drink, eat some snacks so we can start on time.

Space is limited so make sure to sign up quickly for a fun date, girls night out, or just you wanting to broaden your horizons & learn a new skill!

If you're still reading, here is a little bit about me:
Hello! I am Angela Stiftar, the founder of Midwest Mermaid. From a young age I have been infatuated with all things creative: drawing, painting, poetry, theatre, dance, photography, you name it. I am a professional Graphic Designer but about 1.5 years ago I found the art of printmaking and loved it! The therapeutic process of carving the blocks is my favorite part; not having an easy undo button forces me to slow down and enjoy the creativity.

Hope to see you soon!
