Tune into this online demonstration with printmaker Matt Dunlop as he guides you through the rewarding world of home printing, taking your already carved block through all the stages to get to the final print. Although it might seem complicated at first, it is entirely possible to get your relief project printed, and to have just as professional an outcome as in the studio, with a few tools, some desk space and a couple of key skills.

Matt will introduce you to all the tools and materials you'll need to print your block as well as demonstrating step-by-step how this can be achieved at home. He'll discuss the differences between various papers and inks and give some recommendations for what works best in this context.

This demonstration is for anyone new to the concept of home printing who would like some guidance on how to get their relief projects printed at home, as well as those printmakers who haven't been able to get to the studio in a while that want to keep the creative juices flowing.


*Note: This demo will cover the basics of home printing. If you would like to know how to get your block to this stage, please refer to the Cutting Linocut online demo offered on July 15th.



Matt Dunlop is an English artist and printmaker based in Calgary. He works in relief print, primarily woodcut, finding this ancient process to be the most enjoyable and natural way of translating the world around him into imagery. Matt is also an avid instructor and teacher who enjoys learning from his students, sometimes as much as they learn from him. Matt has been a member or Alberta Printmakers for 2 years, since moving to Canada, and has become a regular print instructor within the space.



We recognize that folks in Calgary and around the world are currently facing very important and impactful global issues. 


Now, more than ever, we need ways to make & celebrate art (as professional development, relief, escape, self-care, and as a way to self-express, etc).  At the same time, many of us may be financially strained or needing to focus financial resources elsewhere at the moment.
