Чем вы займетесь

Create art steeped in L.A. history and landscape

I want my guests to walk in the footsteps (and carve in the grooves) of a printmaker of the last century. First, we will take in the historically bohemian enclave of the Echo Park hills as we hike to the landmarked cottage of master engraver Paul Landacre.* Once we have completed our hike, we will return to my backyard to do printmaking projects of our own.

During our scenic hike to the cottage, I’ll share a brief history of the artist’s work and show a few iconic prints of the neighborhood. As we walk the half mile, we will bask in the canyon environment that nurtured his art deco woodcuts, gather artistic inspiration, and discuss what types of images are most effective for block printing.

On our return, we will begin sketching our prints over refreshments on my brick patio, shaded by ficus and bougainvillea. I will then assist guests in transferring sketches to 4” x 6” rubber blocks and in relief carving their images. Guests will make a trial prints on scrap paper before printing a signed, numbered edition of postcards, for keeping or sending home.

* The Landacre cottage is derelict. There is no access to the interior or its grounds. We will take it in from street level only.

I am a writer, book artist, and former high school teacher who is passionate about immersive historical experiences. My fascination with Paul Landacre didn't come out of nowhere when I moved to Echo Park, though — I have a long time interest in the history of book illustrators and printmakers, and have written articles about Eric Sloane, Daniel Carter Beard, and Arthur Hemming for publications like the The Public Domain Review and Common-place.

Где вы побываете

We will first visit the landmarked (though inaccessible) cottage of master wood engraver Paul Landacre. On the mile and change hike out and back, we will enjoy shady staircase streets and sweeping vistas of the San Fernando Valley.

For the second phase of the experience, we will do a printmaking project on my patio, shaded by ficus, bougainvillea, and bird of paradise trees.

What a wonderful experience. It just ended up being me and my mom, so it was like a little private tour. Abby shared her magical neighborhood with us (including some secret staircases) and we got to learn about an artist we didn’t know really anything about! The cherry on the cake was getting to learn how to do some basic print making. Abby was patient and kind guiding us through the process, and made some good recommendations along the way. We love our postcards!! Thank you, Abby!

We had an absolutely wonderful experience hiking and print making with Abby. My girlfriend and I are both Echo Park residents who were looking for something new and unique to do in our neighborhood, when we came across Abby's experience. She welcomed us with friendliness and warmth, before we set off on the hike in the hills of Echo Park. She was informative responsive to our questions, naturally making it feel like a friend leading us rather than an instructor or tour guide. We even had the pleasure of her friendly dog Kiwi joining us. After working up a sweat discovering the historical gem in our own neighborhood, we were comfortably seating in Abby's shaded back patio where we enjoyed iced tea, hummus, and a brief reprieve from the usual noise of the city. As we started on our own prints, Abby was very diligent in showing us proper form, technique and different styles. She was patient and encouraging, helping us learn a brand new art from without letting us get discouraged. We both ended up with designs and prints were were happy (and impressed!) with, excited to tell other friends and family about the unique experience. This is something I absolutely recommend for a day date, a creative outing, or anyone interested in learning more about the print making artist Paul Landacre.

We had an excellent time exploring the Echo Park hills with Abby as she informed us of Paul Landacre's life and works. Got to see a special, tucked-away area of LA that we wouldn't have known about otherwise. Learning from and interacting with Abby was certainly a highlight of our trip and making our own hand-made postcards was a lot of fun, despite not having any artistic background. Would definitely recommend!!

What a unique subject and art workshop to participate in.. I had no idea this artist existed.. And was able to receive a comprehensive history and background on Paul Landacre. Such a lovely neighborhood to explore by foot, and wonderful host! I could have never done this by myself in Echo Park. Abby was an excellent host. I would highly recommend this for a unique low key tour and fun art workshop experience in LA. Thanks Abby!

A wonderful experience! Abby was a friendly & fun host who was very knowledgeable. I was looking for a relaxing morning and I got just that - with some awesome prints too! The walk had some great views and I really enjoyed the history component before we sat down to carve some prints. The neighbourhood is also really cool so it's a nice place to be for lunch and walking around afterwards. I would highly recommend this experience to everyone! :)
