Woodcut is a relief printing technique in printmaking. An artist carves an image into the surface of a block of wood typically with gouges—leaving the printing parts level with the surface while removing the nonprinting parts.

It is an experimental woodcut workshop where the main idea is to “play” with the technique and drawing intended to get the most play from the plate. Everything is possible with the imagination and working with freedom.

You will learn:
• How to interpret your drawing into a one color print.
• How to simplify your idea and transfer it on a wood board.
• Registration of your print
• getting your inks ready
• what is a relief print

The first 20 minutes to class is dedicated to design and technique.
