Woodcut is an ancient process that has been employed by artists around the world for more than a thousand years. It uses minimal technology, requiring only a sturdy table, a few simple cutting and inking tools, and a wooden spoon to print the block.

Participants will learn about the required materials and tools, how to safely and effectively use the proper tools to cut an image into the woodblock, and how to print it. The class will also demonstrate multiple block printing and other more advanced techniques for those who wish to try them.

Despite the simplicity of the medium, resulting prints are as individual as the artist who makes them. And you can easily make many identical prints of your block, good for simultaneous exhibitions, sales, and experimenting with images. If you enjoy work with a bold graphic quality, woodcut is the medium for you.

Participants ages 14+ will be provided with cutting tools, wood, ink, brayers, and basic print paper to use during the class meetings.

A list of optional materials will be made available to those who take the class. If you are a former student in need of printing time only, please contact Paul to arrange time.
