In a village with many new people moving in, some old and new friends gathered to make something memorable. (Why printmaking is fun: parties form to make it happen.)
A visitor from far away helped with carving a block of wood. His name is Sean Starwars. He taught young artists how he works. (Why printmaking is fun: Two words: Sean Starwars.)
Other people formed groups to carve large and detailed woodblocks. Then ink was rolled on to the blocks while last-minute details were tended. (Why printmaking is fun: The aroma of the ink.)
After a white cloth was lain atop the inked woodblock, a big green visitor from a construction site rolled over it. (Why printmaking is fun: It involves mashing.)
The new print was then hung to dry and to be admired. (Why printmaking is fun: It causes the sun to shine and cast shadows.)
Thank you, Gina Reynoso of the Atlanta Printmakers Studio for anwering my questions!
