Woodblock Printmaking - One Block Reduction Workshop

In this workshop participants will create a multicolored ‘bleed' print using one woodblock and a reduction technique that is inventive with methods that can be spontaneous, simple and direct. Through demonstrations and discussions, participants will explore block preparation, cutting techniques, and printing options, including stencils and multiple layers of thinly applied ink. Participants will be encouraged to develop a personal approach to their work through exploration and evaluation. This workshop is designed to create a comfortable yet challenging atmosphere for the exploration of this medium. Some experience with relief printmaking is helpful. All levels
