*Thank you Grand County Library for opening up this class to the public! This event, in conjunction with the book signing featuring Author Shelley Read, the acclaimed writer of “Go As a River,” adds an extra layer of cultural and intellectual richness to our community.

It’s worth noting that the generosity of the Grand County Library has made this class accessible to all, whether you’re attending the book signing or not.

Let’s learn printmaking and create with Grace! Woodblock carving and relief printmaking allows you to create an original work of art that can be reproduced over and over again, by hand. In this lesson, you will learn how to create, carve and print a woodblock.
