grOCAD Workshop a Success!

If you missed grOCAD’s Hanging Garden Workshop on Saturday, you missed a great time! Pop bottles were drilled, twine was strung, fingernails were dirtied, and herbs were planted. grOCAD provided supplies and expertise so we all went home not just with a hanging garden but, more importantly, the knowledge of how to care for it and how to make more of them!

grOCAD is a group of students, faculty, and staff who are interested in food accessibility, urban agriculture, and integrating plant life into the everyday. Wanna join in the fun? Check out grOCAD’s Facebook group or send grOCAD an email!

Zine Workshop Series: Block Printing

A three-part Zine Workshop Series held at the Learning Zone concluded on February 13th with a Block Printing workshop lead by Marta Chudolinska, a multi-disciplinary artist and the Learning Zone Librarian.

Block Printing has been a significant part of Marta’s art practice as evident in her graphic novel Back + Forth: A Novel in 90 Linocuts.

Marta demonstrated her printmaking expertise in a three-hour workshop to fellow zinesters, using block printing techniques — carving by hand, rolling out the ink and printing on a variety of papers, ultimately creating some awesome linoleum relief prints.

Thanks to all of the participants and keep making zines!
