Cost: $85.00 (includes materials)
I am opening up my printmaking studio for a one day woodcut workshop where students will learn to carve and print a single layer woodcut. We will explore simplifying an image to suit the media, reverse imagery, safe carving techniques and hand printing.
Students will have the opportunity to carve two small images and will leave this workshop with up to 10 hand-printed greeting cards of their own design (with envelopes) and the knowledge and experience to go home and print more! Additional matching card stock and envelopes will be available for purchase at the end of the day.
Basic tools and materials will be provided. We will be printing with oil-based ink. Be sure to bring a smock or wear appropriate clothing as these inks will permanently stain all fabric. The workshop will break for about one hour between the carving and printing stages, so please bring a bag lunch or enjoy one of the many local restaurant options in Downtown White Bear Lake.
Class size is limited to 4 students. Open to all skill levels, ages 16 and older.
