This course will offer artists the opportunity to learn about advanced Woodcut Printmaking. Artists will use Baltic Birch plywood and Bass Wood to colour print on a press and by hand. Woodcut techniques will include image to block, various carving methods with hand tools and power tools. Various fine papers will be used to print single block, multi blocks, and reduction prints. Critiques and exhibition opportunities will be presented as a professional series of woodcut prints will be developed.
