What you'll do

We'll begin the workshop on my private and cozy outdoor patio. As you sip a local soda or glass of wine, I'll go over a brief history of block printing, and show you examples of patterns and shapes that can easily create yourself. You'll quickly get a "handle" on the carving tool and be able to make your very own carved block (which you get to keep!). The workshop will reach its grand finale when you get to block print with ink onto a canvas tote that you'll be able to use the rest of your trip (or carry onto the plane with souvenirs)!

Meagan

I'm a working artist, published author, and educator who's taught on CreativeLive and hosted countless workshops from Sacramento to SF to LA. With a BFA in Printmaking, and a passion for people, I love helping others tap into their creative side and express themselves through the magic of art! I also run my own creative business where I make custom rubber stamps for businesses to use on packaging and marketing materials. I love the versatility of printmaking, and I'm happy to host guests of all artistic levels. We're all artists. :)

What's included

Drinks
I'll have a variety of locally-picked beverages for you to enjoy, be it a sip of sparkling H2O or a glass of vino.
Equipment
Lino carving tool, a block of carving rubber, block printing ink, and a canvas tote bag.

Where you'll be

We will enjoy our workshop on my cozy, private outdoor patio which features a big wooden table, enough seating for up to 6 guests. It's a bright and sunny space–the perfect little slice of LA!

Things to keep in mind

Cancellation policy

Any experience can be cancelled and fully refunded within 24 hours of purchase, or at least 7 days before the experience starts.

Communication policy

Always communicate through Airbnb. To protect your payment, never transfer money or communicate outside the Airbnb website or app.

Guest requirements

Up to 6 guests ages 18 and up can attend. All artistic skill levels are welcome, even if you don't think you're creative! This is a craft that you can make as intricate or simple as you like. The fun is the process, and making something with your…

Government ID

You’ll need to take a picture of yourself that matches the photo on your ID. This is so Airbnb can confirm who’s actually going on the experience. You’ll only have to do this once.

Alcohol

This experience includes alcohol. Only guests who meet the legal drinking age will be served alcoholic beverages.

What to bring

All materials will be provided, but if guests would like to bring a design idea, photo, or sketch of something they'd like to make as their block, I'm happy to help bring that idea to life!

More tips

We are in the Boyle Heights neighborhood of LA. There is plenty of street parking and I'll be out in front of the complex to welcome you in. After the workshop, I suggest grabbing a bite from one of the local food trucks, or visiting the nearby Arts District's many galleries and restaurants!
