Reduction Woodcut: Carving the Colors
In reduction woodcut, a single block is used for a multilayered color print. The block is progressively carved away while printing the color layers in order, reducing the printed area with each layer. This workshop will cover block preparation, carving techniques, tool maintenance, registration, color mixing with oil-based ink, and pressing the print. Students will design their own images and can expect to complete a small edition of multicolor woodcut prints. All levels. Printmaking studio.
