Working with an A4 size Japanese plywood this woodcut course will look at making a multi-coloured image using the reduction method. After the image is designed on the woodblock a registration board is made and the white areas are removed from the surface. The wood block is then printed multiple times before the next area is cut away and reprinted on top of the originals.
Not for the faint hearted this method is often referred to as ‘suicide technique’ as there is no going back! Guidance will be given on how to work with and maintain woodcut tools. There will be group discussions and one to one support throughout the course.
Refunds are not available on this booking. Start dates may be amended on request.
You will be shown examples of prints for your reference. The tutor will give demonstration of techniques and methods where applicable, followed by learner hands on practise. There will be group discussions and one to one support to address individual needs. Throughout the course there will be a sharing of work in an informal but supportive manner. Working with a variety of materials students will be required to adhere closely to the safety procedures.
All students record and assess progress via a Learning Statement and through the development of their work and research.
