Woodblock Printing (S17A12)                  

Price: $190,  Members $180 

This basic introduction to woodcut printing will use both wood blocks and soft-cut linoleum blocks. After reviewing how to prepare a wood block, participants will draw directly onto the block or transfer a simple sketch, then work the image using carving tools.

Prints will be made both by hand and with AVA’s Charles Brand etching press using water-based relief inks. Hand printing techniques that use simple tools and yield professional results will be emphasized in this class. The process is easily replicated at home or in your classroom.


Mmmm, smell the ink!
