Description

Get creative and connect with community with JUMP's Día de Muertos Steamroller Print Project. Join Wingtip Press at JUMP for an introduction to techniques and strategies for exploring the expressive qualities of woodcut printmaking. You’ll learn cutting techniques using traditional and non-traditional tools and strategies for designing and transferring an image to your block. We invite you to bring a toner-based photocopy (no inkjet, please) of your own image sized to 7” x 7" or select from a variety of images we will provide at the workshop. Simple high contrast black and white images are best for carving. Carving tools will be available to use or you are welcome to bring your own tools if you have them. You will leave with your hand carved block and a print and we ask that you donate a second print to the Día de Muertos Steamroller Print Project event and celebration. Ages 13 and up.
