About this Workshop:

This intermediate woodcut workshop is designed to demonstrate and introduce students to color woodcut printmaking. In a reduction woodcut, a single block is used for a multilayered color print. A block is progressively carved away while printing the color layers in order, reducing the printed area with each color layer. This workshop will cover the following techniques through hands-on demonstrations: carving techniques, registration, color mixing with oil-based ink, and pressing a print. Students will carve an 18”x24” birch plywood block using their own design and can expect to complete a small edition of two-color prints. 

Level: Advanced – Woodcut: As Detailed as it Gets or similar woodcut printmaking experience (15 hrs) is required.

Registration has been extended to January 3, 2023. Material fees are included with your registration to cover items provided in class, including wood blocks, ink, and newsprint. Students will have a small list of additional items to gather/purchase for class.
