Preserving The Craft
See the block printing process from design idea to finished product:
Katharine Watson's printed designs all begin with a hand-carved linoleum block. She draws her designs onto a blank sheet of linoleum, then uses a knife or gouge tool to carve out the image.
Katharine rolls ink onto the block, then prints the linoleum block on our antique Challenge printing press.
Because each piece is printed by hand, no two are exactly alike. Here, a finished print and the corresponding linoleum block sit side by side.
