Art Demonstration
MMAA Project Space | 332 N. Robert Street, 55101
1:00 PM to 3:00 PM

This event is free, open to the public, and does not require registration.

Minnesota Center for Book Arts teacher and artist Emily Hoisington will bring in her hand-carved woodblocks, some of which were used to print the pieces in the show, and teach you how it’s done. Don’t miss this special opportunity to learn the process behind the art from the artist and try it yourself.

Woodblock business cards!

Sunday, May 20th, 2012

Yesterday, during my demo at MCBA, I printed some business cards. I’ve wanted to carve a woodblock for printing business cards for a long time, and I finally did it! Although I think I might eventually clear a bit more wood away to make it look more finished:

Also, for those of you who may be holding one of the cards I gave you yesterday and reading this blog for the first time, I wanted to tell you of another upcoming opportunity to study Japanese Woodcut with me. I’ll be teaching a workshop at Peninsula School of Art in Door County, WI this August 16-18. If you’re interested, register now and plan an art making vacation!

Prints ready to mail to my collaborator

Friday, February 24th, 2012

This week I mailed some prints to Jane Rosemarin to fold into origami vegetables. We are working on a collaborative project where I make prints and she designs origami models. I will post pictures of the models later.

These are for a little zucchini with a yellow flower. Because of the way the folding works out, I’ve printed the green on one side and the yellow on the reverse.

And this is for a carrot.

Earlier this winter, I taught the first Advanced Japanese Woodblock class at MCBA, by request from students in previous classes. Here’s work by students in that class:

I’m looking forward to teaching an intro-level Japanese Woodblock class again at MCBA on Mondays March 26-April 30. Also, for the first time I will travel to teach a workshop at Peninsula School of Art in Door County, Wisconsin, this August 16, 17, and 18.

Carving small block with gardening tools

It’s been a busy semester teaching two classes that are new to me and balancing that with mothering. But now I am finally working on art! This will hopefully contribute to a collaborative project that I’ll write more about later.
