This intensive, exciting workshop will awaken the possibilities for the woodcut printing process for the beginning and advanced printmaker. This approach is not technically tradition-bound…but inventive, with contemporary, creative methods, that can be spontaneous, simple and direct. This expressive medium will be introduced and explored through demonstrations and discussions of cutting techniques, oil-base inks and water-base inks, modifiers, and printing by hand as well as using the press. Participants will go from designing their images and cutting blocks, to printing several projects using a variety of methods and individual discoveries. For all levels.
