This course will be a six-week introduction and exploration of relief printmaking. Students will get to see the range of carving tools and block materials available today so that they can select what works best for their needs. Participants will learn skills that can be utilized in a professional studio or at a kitchen table, including image transfer methods, single and multiple block methods for working in color, and registration systems. Participants should expect to produce one single color and one multiple color woodcut image during the course. Some carving blocks and proofing paper will be provided. Individuals taking the course will need to purchase carving tools and some additional printing paper.
