Relief from the cares and woes of modern living comes in many forms, and at this evening’s Relief Printmaking Workshop you’ll use linoleum blocks to smash the state you’re in by carving your own statement into them.  Such blocks are the traditional building materials of protest movements — so simple and direct are they — and you can conjure up your own placard or t-shirt once you’ve mastered the form. The workshop is free, but be sure to make advance reservations for materials like $12 for a 9×12 linoleum block and $5 for 4 sheets of Stonehenge paper, and you’re all set.

Last Projects, 206 S. Ave. 20, Lincoln Heights; Tue., June 11, 6 p.m.; free. (323) 356-4225,
