About this Workshop:

In 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 6-hour workshop will demonstrate and cover the following techniques through hands-on demonstrations: carving techniques, registration, color mixing with oil-based ink, and pressing a print. 

Students are encouraged to design their own 4.5” x 7” image before the workshop. Participants will carve a birch plywood block and can expect to complete a small edition of 8.5” x 11” (paper size) of their two-color prints.

Level: Intermediate: Introduction to Relief Printmaking (6-hours), or similar printmaking experience, required.

Registration closes November 26, 2022. Material fees are included with your registration to cover items provided in class, including ink, paper, wood block, and other miscellaneous supplies.
