We recommend starting with Mindy’s full workshop!
Included in this listing:
Two 4 x 6″ carving blocks
Two additional steel + birch custom carving tools to create a full set. We’re incredibly proud of our custom tool collaboration with the good folks over at U.J.Ramelson. For all of the block printers out there, we’ve specially curated a kit of minimalist, sustainable tools that will last you ages and meet all of your carving needs for the largest of prints to the most detailed of designs.
Included in the Linocut Landscape Printmaking kit is a steel 4.7mm straight shaft v-tool and in our Tiled Block Print with Gradation kit a custom white birch + steel angled shaft 4mm v-tool. These two diverse tools are an excellent way to start your collection.
There are two more additional carving tools that will help to build your carving repertoire and - through the guidance of our artists - we've commissioned those two additional tools to create the perfect carving set. The PERFECT carving set. From removing large expanses of rubber or linoleum to etching beautiful details into big and small prints, this is the only set your curated artist toolbox needs. The ergonomic shape of a palm tool (to ‘push’ as you carve) is a must so we ensured that these tools were built just that way.
The tools, made from US carbon tool steel and white birch hardwood, are hand forged, polished, and sharpened by 3rd generation family craftsmen at U.J. Ramelson in Maine - this amazing team specializes in handcrafted, American-made carving tools. Not commonly found but very favorites of print makers are the unique sizes we have paired together. The custom birch handles are a very special detail.

Our full Tiled Block Print with Gradation Workshop with Mindy Schumacher includes three block printing inks to build a gradient: blue, white and black. These three can be combined with additional colors to truly customize. Note those gorgeous gradients to the left? Mindy achieved that look by blending her favorite tones with white and black for the perfect hue.
Speedball Fabric and Paper Block Printing Ink is an oil-based ink that provides bold, opaque color that is permanent yet cleans up easily with soap and water. Experience the beauty of block printing with an ink that works just as well on fabric as it does on paper. While our main kit is paired with a beautiful silk scarf, this ink set also works wonderfully on cotton, polyester blends, linen, rayon, and other synthetic fibers, it can also be used on paper and cardboard. Please note that it is not intended for use with nylon.
Let's explore new colorways with this materials kit.
