Print your own poster at the Running Springs Farmers Market
This is the first in person event in the general public that I have been a part of since the pandemic started. With a small town like Running Springs, I thought it would be a nice transition back into “Real Life.”
In this event, myself and some helpers laid out the printing press and got to printing. We encouraged onlookers to come and learn about printmaking.
One gentleman I spoke to had a Katsushika Hokusai “The Great Wave off Kanagawa” shirt on which he did not even realize was a form of printmaking, both on the shirt print as well as the original Japanese Woodblock work of art. Hokusai was a ukiyo-e painter and printmaker of the Edo period. He thought it was cool that it was Printmaking and I think he took some new information about art home with him.
I had great conversations with people about linocut and how it is an underrated art form. One woman was very enthusiastic about printmaking and I loved talking with her.
Another woman turned out to be a small children’s book publisher and I had fun showing her daughter how publishing and print began.
It was a blast teaching people about printmaking and having some adults reminisce about their experience with linoleum.
