Enrol in Printmaking - Woodcut
Course Code: ARTS2174
Learn the processes of carving an image into a wood plate, inking the surface, and hand printing multiple copies of your design. Single-coloured images will be introduced to learn the complete sequential process. The reduction method - reducing the printable, relief surface to superimpose different colours on each consecutive print - will be demonstrated mid-course. Instruction will include discussion and demonstration of sharpening carving tools. Subject choice and exploring personal style will be encouraged. You may bring lino blocks or scraps of softwood as an alternative/supplement to the provided basswood plates. This introductory relief printmaking course is open to all levels.
