Learn the process of creating woodblock prints, or "woodcuts". Participants will create a line drawing on wood, then carving away the negative space to produce a bold, linear "key block". Participants will then transfer the design to a second block to carve and add color. Printing techniques will be introduced (specific techniques are listed below) 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.
Participants will have hands-on instruction in exploring a variety of techniques including:
This class will run from 1pm to 6pm and welcomes beginner & intermediate artists. These hours include set up, design, creation, clean up and a break for lunch. Please bring your own lunch or lunch may be purchased on your own at area eateries.

I'm a woodblock printmaker who is committed to a non-toxic (or less toxic) art practice. I started out as a painter but found my way to printmaking through a love of paper and process. I seem to be falling for papermaking in the same way. I went to Syracuse University, where I studied painting (BFA) and museum studies (MA). I was a Resident Artist at the Howard County Center for the Arts for five years and previously worked at the National Museum of Women in the Arts. This blog is for posting works-in-progress and new works, as well as a few creative projects I've done with my kids.
