Multiple Block Woodcut Printing

All Levels

Ages 16+


6 Weeks

In this intermediate-level course, students will expand upon relief printing techniques by producing works that incorporate more than one carved block in their imagery. This can include jigsaw printing, where blocks are matched up together to form an image, blocks that are cut in unique forms and layered block printing to produced multi-layered, singular images. Students will also be encouraged to expand their approach to mark making with relief prints that can include abstract to representational imagery. We will collaborate with the Craft Alliance woodshop area to learn to operate basic woodshop tools to cut and measure our own blocks. This course is well-suited for those who already have basic, introductory level knowledge of relief printmaking and operating printmaking equipment looking to explore more extended methods to produce prints outside of traditional formats. Participants will produce hand-pulled, limited editions of work for each technique in class. Emphasis is also placed on developing critical judgment, aesthetic awareness, and visual vocabulary associated with talking about their own and other’s work. Students are encouraged to develop their work in a collaborative learning environment through critical review, mentoring, self-evaluation and discussions.
