Instructor: Pamela Dodds
Turn your own design, or a design / image of your choice, into a woodblock print! In woodcut printing, the wood is carved away, leaving the design on the surface to be inked and printed. This class will guide you in the use of wood carving tools, carving techniques, and how to printing with black or coloured inks to achieve the effect you desire. You will make a series of one- or two-colour prints. Non-toxic, oil-based inks will be used.
