It's that time of year again when I do a workshop on introductory level printmaking at Acadia University. This year we've spread the sessions across three intensive weekends, as well as adding a section on DIY options for home-made presses. The students will be building a small 18"x18" hydraulic bottle jack press based on a simple design I use for my own studio. Great for woodblock and collagraph printing. After Judy and I return from Mexico in late March, we plan to offer more printmaking workshops up at the North Mountain studios..
