You’ll receive lasercut parts with assembly components to build a Provisional Press that you can use to make prints at home!   In addition to showing you how to assemble the press, Mary will discuss linoleum, tools, and approaches to making an edition of relief prints.  She’ll demonstrate techniques for preparing a block for carving, tool use, and how to print your image on your new press.
