What You’ll Do

Woodblock printing has been around since at least 200 C.E., and it’s been a staple of Western art and bookmaking since the 1200s. At the turn of the century, two German wallpaper-makers tried carving their patterns into linoleum instead of wood and found the softer material more conducive to nuanced detail. In her working studio, Nazanin Daneshvar guides students into these artists’ ranks by teaching them the lino-printing process while recreating Vermeer’s celebrated Girl with a Pearl Earring.

  • Carve and Scratch
    With knives and chisels, follow Nazanin’s instruction as she helps you interpret Vermeer’s masterpiece on your own 9”x12” linoleum block.

  • Roll and Press
    Roll ink across your relief image, then carefully press the block onto a 10”x14” sheet of paper.

  • Take and Make
    Take not only your print home, but also your linoleum block, which can be reused for years to come.
