Nov 12 - Woodcut Wonders: Beginner Woodcut

Mary ParslowWoodcut Wonders: Beginner Woodcut, Mary Parslow
Sunday, Nov 12 10am-4pm
$105, supplies included

Join us for a chance to follow in the footsteps of those who have discovered the amazing possibilities of cutting and printing a wood block. Woodcuts are the oldest of all the printmaking techniques and a very exciting and satisfying way of making art.  

We will be experimenting at first with tools to make marks on small blocks of “Shina” wood; a Japanese wood that is made especially for woodcut artists.  We will discover the marks each tool makes and design and print a simple abstract design using those marks.

We will then use a piece of 6”x8” Shina wood to design a block, transfer the design onto the block, cut it and print it.  We may have a chance to colour the artwork with a variety of coloured inks and Chine Colle Japanese papers. The wood we use is thick enough to use both sides so there are more possibilities after the initial block is cut.

So come with reference photos, or sketches and drawings and /or magazine pictures remembering our main piece of wood is 6”x8”. Mary will provide all materials. You will leave with a beautiful set of original hand-pulled prints. A wonderful way to start your art or pick it up if you haven’t done any for a while. Bring a friend or family member, give the class as a gift for Christmas or a birthday. See you at the class!

MATERIALS THAT MARY WILL BRING
•small pieces of wood for experiments, 6”x8” piece of wood for each participant, inks, tracing paper, Japanese papers, print papers, registration boards, barens, brayers, inking plates, newsprint, pencils, tape, glue stick, rulers, Inktense pencils
