Block Printing is one of the oldest types of printmaking and has been around for thousands of years. There is evidence that it existed as early as the fifth century BC, with actual fragments found from as early as the fifteenth century. It has been done around the world, with roots in India, China and Japan. Join teacher Molly Meng and learn to design and carve your very own "block" for printing on fabric and paper.

About the Instructor | Molly Meng

Molly C. Meng studied literature with a personal minor in collecting other people’s lives. 

An obsession with old notebooks, vintage photos, and every single discarded book that exists, her work reimagines untold stories behind the otherwise forgotten items of everyday.  A self-taught artist, the medium of collage in both paper and textiles is Molly’s dominant form of communicating.  She successfully weaves the elements of ephemera and storytelling into each piece she creates.  The spectacular beauty of the ordinary is elevated with detail in her work. Molly’s work has shown nationally in New York, San Francisco and Los Angeles and she has produced large scale commissions for Prometheus Apartments in Northern California.  She teaches creative workshops around the U.S. as well as on annual trips to the South of France.  Molly C. Meng is currently living and working in Los Angeles.
