Workshop Description

This course will examine the bold and direct capabilities of woodcut and other relief print surfaces. It will take the student from preliminary sketches to the carving of blocks, using the multiple block technique. By printing multiple layers of transparent inks, images will develop with lush color relationships and luminous surfaces. We will work with color separation/registration, carving with hand and power tools, built-up surfaces, color ink mixing, and stencils. Monotype techniques will also be introduced and can be combined with the carved blocks. During the workshop students first develop a key block, transfer the image to other blocks to carry various colors and then print small editions, exploring color variations. Students should plan to arrive with several worked out compositions, either representational or abstract.

Students do not need to have previous printmaking experience.
