Saturday, June 8, 10 a.m. - 4 p.m., $100, materials included. Click here for Workshop Registration and more details.
Learn the process of creating woodblock prints, or "woodcuts". Participants will create a line drawing on wood, then carve away the negative space to produce a bold, linear "key block". We will then transfer the design to a second block to carve and add color. Printing techniques will be introduced, as well as instruction on using non-toxic Akua inks. The woodblocks can then be used to print an edition or experiment with color variations. Materials are included but please bring a photo or sketch to use as reference and inspiration.
The workshop will take place at the Howard County Center for the Arts, 8510 High Ridge Rd. Ellicott City, MD 21043.
Hope to see you there!
