About this Class

Design and carve a heart relief block to print for your very own Valentine's Day card(s). You can make multiple cards with just one heart, repeating hearts, and maybe even partner with a fellow classmate(s) to share each others’ blocks, creating a design mash-up–the artists’ version of exchanging Valentines. We will be using a block substrate that is much easier on the hands than linoleum or wood can be, so hand strength shouldn’t be an impediment. Join us!


  • Registration closes Jan. 28

Christa Schoenbrodt is founder and owner of Studio Haus, a thriving design studio for more than 25 years. Much of Christa’s career has involved paper so it’s only natural that it’s also part of her personal exploration of art. She is motivated by a curiosity to explore various forms of media and a pursuit for beauty. A question she often repeats to herself starts with “What if…” and ends with a new creative outlet. She can be found experimenting her way through mediums of paper sculpture, printmaking, and fiber arts - at times individually and, at other times, all at once. She loves being a member of the BARN community!
