Block Printed Tea Towels

Date: September 17
Time: 11 am – 3 pm (with a break for lunch)
Registration Deadline: September 16
Location: GAAC

Students will design, carve and print their own designs and patterns on tea towels. Learn how to use linocut tools, experiment with mark making, transfer a drawing to linoleum, carve the linoleum, roll ink and print by hand. We’ll print patterned tea towels with special fabric inks that are washable after drying. The linocuts you make in class are yours to keep to continue printing at home.

To ensure the safety of our students and Staff, we have implemented new procedures for our 2022 programs to mitigate the spread of COVID and still allow participants to have a wonderful time creating art.

  • Class sizes will be limited to 12 persons for indoor programs and 16 outdoor programs
  • All students who have symptoms of respiratory or gastrointestinal infections, such as cough, fever, sore throat, vomiting, or diarrhea, should stay home and not attend class.
  • Students and Staff will wash and sanitize hands frequently throughout the day.
  • Staff will sanitize common areas and touch surfaces regularly.
  • We have optimized our indoor ventilation system to reduce the risk of germs and contaminants spreading through the air.
  • If Leelanau County COVID-related cases are designated high risk, students and visitors must wear a face mask to prevent transmission.

To keep pace with the evolving conditions related to the pandemic, Staff will inform the GAAC’s new policies or procedures before the start of the course.
