Relief Printing: Carving Intensive

June 7 @ 10:00 am - June 28 @ 3:00 pm


Wednesdays, June 7, 14, 21, and 28, 10 AM-3 PM

with Tate Klacsmann

Relief printing in which the final image is made by the raised portions of a block can feel intimidating, because once material has been removed, it’s gone for good. Have you ever wanted advice or feedback as you carve in relief?  This workshop will provide real-time feedback, carving tips and tricks, and support as you develop your images.

This 4 week, once weekly course will focus on the carving process that occurs between preparing and laying out the block and editioning it. It is suitable for printmakers with some relief experience who have their desired tools and are able to come to the first class with a prepared block of any non-wood relief material, such as linoleum, easy cut, or vinyl, and an image transferred or ready for transfer.

After our first meeting, which will include a brief overview of the history of relief carving, each class will include both a group meeting and individual feedback during supervised carving time. Over the 4 weeks the goal will be to build on constructive feedback toward the creation of an editionable block.
