GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) Printmaking is an old trade, but there’s a store in Grand Rapids that’s bringing it to a new and artistic level.

Woosah Outfitters is owned by Kendall College of Art and Design graduate Erica Lang. She studied printmaking at Kendall and specializes in woodcut.

Woosah is a meditative word that is meant to relax. As a student, Lang posted her work online and interest grew until she decided to open her store. Woosah Outfitters features art and apparel inspired by nature.
