On May 6th we were honored to partner with Atlas Obscura as part of their International Obscura Day. On this day, over 170 events took place around the world with unique experiences that celebrated the hidden wonders of the world. One of these events was our block printing workshop, which is one of the most ancient types of printmaking. Students designed and carved blocks, then explored printing on stationery, journals, and dish towels.

We had quite the party for our October 19th block printing workshop. Students designed and carved their own blocks, then printed their patterns onto stationary, journals, and tea towel fabrics. The Beech Street was the perfect hangout on this rainy Portland night!

A special thanks to all participants for a great evening and the Beech Street Parlor for their wonderful hospitality!
