Woodcut Exchange: Editions and Color Print Workshop


Details Fee Breakdown:
Tuition: $735
Material Fee: $90

Making woodcut impressions is one of the oldest techniques to make multiples. It is ideal for the rapid creation of engaging images made up of patterns, bold colors and graphic forms. This workshop will focus on traditional and contemporary woodblock carving techniques and the craft of making color print editions. Printing sessions will take a collaborative approach using the instructor’s vast library of graphic imagery and woodblocks carved throughout the workshop. With dozens of preexisting images and patterns, participants will quickly understand the use of color in woodcut printmaking. In addition to creating a series of one-of-a-kind colorful prints, the class will complete a print exchange. This is a printmaking tradition that speaks to the medium’s democratic and collaborative nature. The instructor and participants will create an edition large enough to supply one print for each participant. This shared experience is a unique opportunity that allows participants to send their work out into the world and build their own personal artwork collection.

Workshops run from 9:00am to 5:00pm each day
Lunch is included for all participants
