CREATE A ONE OR TWO COLOR PRINT!
Woodcut is a type of printmaking process. The art of printmaking involves the creation of a "master" printing block, from which multiple prints can then be made. The creation of a woodcut block is a very satisfying and tactile process, where hand tools are used to carve out the image that will be printed.
In this introductory workshop, students will learn how to:
- use the carving tools
- prepare an image for carving
- execute some basic carving techniques
- print your block by hand
- print multiple colors (registration)
- print cards or stationary
You will take home multiple prints, your block, and a resource guide with instructions and a shopping list so that you can continue to practice on your own.
Themes, images, and ideas are open-ended and entirely up to you, but have some sketches or images in mind before the class! Available block sizes are: 4" x 4", 4" x 6", and 6" x 6"
This class is led by Michael Angelis.
