Cat Head Press is an Indianapolis based not-for-profit community center and fine art printmaking studio. Their primary mission is to enrich and increase the well being of the community through investments in creativity and artistic expression.

Experience the magic of printmaking and create a compelling poster using relief printing techniques. Workshop participants will gain an understanding of relief printing: carving a linoleum block, inking the block and using a printing press to produce a series of prints.


  • Day 1 will consist of learning the printing process and making some art! Each participant will walk away with multiple prints of their own creation.

    • Registration for Day 1 only: $40​

  • Day 2 will be an optional day where everyone attending can participate in a print exchange, making more copies of their work to share and exchange with others.

    • Registration for both days: $50​

In this two-day workshop, join Mitzi Davis, owner of Mitzi’s Functional Ware House and Program Manager of New Harmony Clay Project, as she guides participants (ages 15+) through handbuilding and decorating their own ceramic dishes for the table.

Using the soft slab method, individuals will construct cups, mugs and bowls while considering their own kitchen tables. Will your dishes be used for a simple breakfast sitting for one or a holiday party with serving dishes? Are you serving small after-dinner cordials or large cups of robust coffee? Participants will construct their vessels on the first day and decorate/glaze the following day. Pieces will be ready for pick up by the following Mother’s Day weekend.

*Eventbrite charges a fee to book online. For fee-free registration, please contact CAAC at 812-376-2539 or
