Printmaking for Redbirds
Alumni, family, and friends can join the Illinois State University printmaking program to make an Illinois State themed woodcut print!
What is it exactly? Woodcut is a printmaking process which involves applying ink to a woodblock and then transferring the ink onto paper. ISU printmaking students and faculty will demonstrate before helping guests pick their woodblock image for this special takehome piece. Guests will have an option to choose the vintage “thumbs up” Reggie Redbird (seen below) and other ISU-themed images to try their hand at this unique art to make two prints.
Cost for the two prints is $20, and cost for two prints and one to be framed is $40. Light appetizers will be provided. To register, call Juliana Nelson at (309) 438-2495 Monday-Friday between 8:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. The event is not suitable for children and is open until sold out!
