      This beginner-friendly class serves as an introduction to the oldest form of printmaking – relief printing. You will be creating a single-color linocut print of your own design, and learning the basics of relief printing in the process. You will learn how to use (If member, this counts as certification on) the tabletop cylinder press, barens, and carving tools and become familiar with the processes associated with beginner relief printing: transferring a design, carving/mark-making, inking, and printing.

      Please bring a printout of a simple design (remember that your relief print will be a mirror image of the design you print out). If you don’t have one, one will be provided.

      An Evening with Author Christian Livermore

      Event Description:
      Join us on November 19th from 5-6 PM for an hour of reflective essays with Author, Christian Livermore at the Hygienic Art Gallery. She will read sections from her memoir, “We Are Not Okay.”

      Christian Livermore grew up a shy little girl in a turbulent family sunk in poverty, violence, substance abuse and mental illness. In “We Are Not Okay,” Livermore’s deeply personal and moving essays explore what it means to grow up poor in America and ask whether it is possible to outrun the shame it grinds into your bones. She excoriates the inhumanity in how the United States treats its poor and asks the nation to confront how growing up poor in America brutalizes us and warps our perspective on ourselves, on other people and on the world.
