The White Line Woodcut and Beyond
|Class Start Date:||April 19, 2024|
|Class End Date||April 19, 2024|
|Time||Friday, 10am - 4pm|
The white line woodcut, also known as the Provincetown Print, is a uniquely American form of printmaking, invented by artists working in Provincetown in the early 1900s. In this method, beautiful multicolor prints are printed by hand using a single block, eliminating the need for a press or complicated registration methods. This fun workshop offers the opportunity to learn traditional techniques of design, carving, and printing, as well as the chance to expand upon the tradition with creative inking and printing options, to create contemporary interpretations of the medium. Participants will leave with a number of prints, and with newfound skills and appreciation of the process.
Please note the class registration fee covers the cost of materials that will be provided to students: one 8″ x 10″ Shina block, one sheet of Washi printing paper (which will make two prints), and use of instructor’s inks, carving tools, brushes, palettes, carbon paper, waxed paper, printing barens, and much more.
