HOME COURSES SHORT COURSES WOODCUT

Woodcut

Woodcut is one of the simplest and oldest forms of relief printmaking. Its roots date back to ninth century China. Following trade routes in the Islamic world, the technique spread through Asia and Europe. It wasn't until the development of large-scale papermaking operations in the fifteenth century that relief printing became economically viable as a means of printing for mass distribution of religious and informative imagery of all kinds.

Course Information

A reverse design or drawing is made on a piece of wood and the untouched areas are then cut away with gouges, leaving the raised image which can then be inked and transferred to paper or fabric.

This introductory course will cover the choice of best materials, the use of the different tools, how to maintain and sharpen them and how to register and print the image by hand and with the aid of a press.


All materials and notes are included in the price of this workshop. No previous experience of printmaking is required.
