Block Or Not...The Big Stamp with Jennifer Cunningham - Babóro Workshop
Jennifer Cunningham | Ireland | Workshop For Children

Printmaking is believed to have originated as early as the 1st century AD during China’s Han Dynasty. The medium’s ability to reproduce images and create unique visual qualities has influenced everyone from book publishers to graphic designers. Artists in particular have driven the medium forward by experimenting with its various processes, in which ink is moved from one surface to another.
