Create a relief image in 5 classes and print it with a steamroller!
All within a month! This class will take you through the concept, creation, and printing of a large print (at least two feet square). For 5 classes participants work with chisels, power tools and more to create an image on an oversize piece of wood or linoleum. The class will culminate with an all day steamroller printing event in which participants print plates during the Arts for All Festival, June 8. All materials included. (5 weeks)

Enjoy a four-day immersion into an absorbing age-old printmaking process. We will carve and print woodcuts using classic and more contemporary methods to achieve exciting results during this 4-day in-depth Printfest! We will experiment with one color and with layered images as they emerge from your carved block. Color, composition and texture will all be considered as you explore all the ways relief printmaking can challenge your process. Using Akua non-toxic inks we will combine many blocks or work reductively from one; rotate blocks and utilize stencils to hide and reveal layers in your work. Class time runs from 9am to noon but participants are welcomed/encouraged to stay to work on their own during the afternoon. Class is limited to 8. Please bring your own sharpened quality woodcut carving tools, the rest will be covered in the materials fee. More info upon registration.
