Students produce artistic woodblocks at Blocktoberfest

Each fall semester, University of North Florida students work collaboratively with students from Florida State College at Jacksonville to produce large-scale - 8 ft. x 4 ft. - woodblocks using a steamroller.

Blocktoberfest is held each October and gives students from the two institutions the opportunity to work together while learning important printmaking skills. This year, 10 UNF students and seven from FSCJ printed images on fabric for banners. These banners along with some of the large-scale blocks will be exhibited at MOCA next month. 

For the past eight years, the all-day event, held at the FSCJ South Campus, attracts family, friends, students, alumni and others who celebrate the quality of craft and mastery created by the students.
