About this Workshop:

Woodcut is considered to be the earliest of all printmaking methods. Students will directly draw their image onto a 16”x20” woodblock. They will begin carving their block after having different types of line carving demos to demonstrate the use and execution of black and white lines in the creation of an image, followed by printing their block. The emphasis in this class is to introduce the novice to the following techniques: types of wood, surface preparation, image design, carving techniques, tool maintenance, inking, and pressing a print. Students are encouraged to design their own image and can expect to complete a small edition of black and white prints at the completion of the workshop.

Level: All levels welcome – no previous printmaking experience necessary

Registration closes June 5, 2022.  Material fees are included with your registration, though a list of additional items needed to be gathered/purchased will be sent with your confirmation.
