Event Details

Woodblock is a printing technique in which a block of relatively soft wood is prepared with a relief pattern, which means that the positive space is identified and the negative space is cut away with woodcarving tools, chisels, and sandpaper. It is then inked with a roller and printed under heavy pressure.

In this three-hour class, students will utilize drawing and carving techniques to translate an image onto a wooden block by either hand rendering or photographic transfer. The negative space will then be carved away to create a relief of the intended image, which will be inked and printed in one color. The first 35-45 minutes of the class will be used to explain the proper handling of the carving tools, press, and inks. A printing and photographic transfer demonstration will be included as well. It is recommended that students bring reference images for the content they plan to draw or transfer. The workshop price includes all necessary materials (wood, drawing/carving tools, ink, paper, and press use). Each participant will walk away with an edition of ten finished woodblock prints.
