Welcome to the wonderfully direct and accessible art and craft of woodcut! There is nothing like the meditative process of carving a block and bringing an image to life. In this workshop you will learn all you need to know to get started or to expand your carving and printing techniques.

We will learn about preparing blocks, transferring images to the block, carving tool use and care, and printing with one or more colors.  Working with collage and chine colle in combination with printing will also be introduced.

Looking at masterworks and our working drawings, we will explore how positive and negative shapes, texture, value and a range of carving techniques contribute to creating beautiful and exciting woodcut images.

Newcomers and experienced printmakers are welcome.
