This two-day workshop will introduce the techniques of woodcut and linocut.
Woodcut, the most widely known form of relief printmaking, is the raised surface that contains the positive image that is printed. The background area or negative space is carved away leaving white or non-printed areas. This print process allows a variety of mark making of line through the use of different tools and a variety of tonal qualities through the process of multi block printing.
Linocut (sheets of linoleum) will also be available as it is a softer material than the MDF boards we will use for woodcut.
This hands-on workshop will cover the finer techniques of both forms of printmaking, demonstrating good ink applications and colour roll-up techniques throughout each print process. Experimentation and diversity will be encouraged.
For the beginning printer, the course offers a perfect introduction to the exciting world of print. Additionally, it operates as an ideal refresher course for those who have had prior experience.
