This workshop focuses on the fundamentals of woodcut printing, the oldest of the printmaking processes. Developed in the ninth century, this graphic process appeals to many contemporary artists. View a variety of woodcut prints then watch the instructor demonstrate how to carve a woodblock. With guidance from the teacher, students design, transfer, cut, ink and print a small edition of woodcut prints. Participants should bring sketches or photographs to work from. Materials will be provided.
Cost: $160 (VMFA members $145)
