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:
- Drawing/Transferring an image to a block
- Carving a design into a woodblock (suitable for printing)
- Transferring a printed image to a color block
- Registration (lining up the key block and the color block)
- Inking woodblocks
- Printing by hand
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.
