The Woodcut: Beyond Black and White

Using everything from knives and gouges to hammers and torches, this woodcut workshop will focus on expanding students’ graphic vocabulary beyond linear and bold qualities toward textural and atmospheric effects. Guided drawing exercises will complement experimental and collaborative demonstrations covering image transfer methods, traditional and alternative carving methods, inking with oil-based inks, color-mixing, and both press and non-press printing methods. Students will experiment with the techniques and pursue their own original imagery. All levels. Code 02X
