About the event
Welcome to our Painterly Woodcut Printing Workshop!
with Sally-Ann Davies
Saturday, 25th November
10am - 4pm
Explore the captivating world of woodcut printing, a traditional relief printmaking technique with a rich history spanning centuries. Whether you're an art enthusiast, a seasoned artist, or a curious beginner, this immersive workshop caters to all skill levels.
To ensure a fulfilling experience, Sally-Ann will provide all necessary materials and tools: woodcutting tools, carving blocks, printing paper, ink, and brayers. As well as various block sizes.
Before you start carving, Sally-Ann will walk you through the design elements, assisting you in creating your ideas and transferring them onto the carving block. Discover the art of applying ink evenly to the block, resulting in a painterly impression. Experiment with monochromatic and multi-colour printing, broadening your creative possibilities.
The heart of woodcut printing lies in carving designs onto the wooden block. You'll learn various carving techniques, such as line carving, cross-hatching, and creating textures. Gain confidence in skillfully manipulating the tools to bring your designs to life.
The workshop also covers the art of hand-printing. Learn to set up a printing station and register your carved blocks with precision, achieving flawless alignment in your prints. Join us for an enriching experience in our Painterly Woodcut Printing Workshop for Adults.
Unleash your creativity, master the art of woodcut printing, and take home a portfolio of unique prints to proudly showcase. Whether you seek a new artistic hobby or aim to refine your skills, our workshop promises a transformative and fulfilling journey.
Reserve your spot today and embark on an artistic adventure that will leave a lasting impression!
