    Make A Crankie at Atlanta Printmakers Studio (registration link coming soon)

    Crankies are illustrated scrolls contained in boxes on dowels with attached handles. These scrolls are “hand cranked” to create a moving panorama, inviting the viewer to experience the images like watching a movie. These historic storytelling devices were often used as full-immersion experiences, filling an entire room with images of far-away lands to create the feeling of going on a journey.


    In this workshop, we’ll make smaller “personal” crankies that tells your story through relief prints. Each student will carve a block, then we’ll collaborate to print them together on a single long scroll. The scrolls will then be attached to crankie mechanisms in wooden boxes, and then we’ll have a show!
