White Line Wood Cut
Workshop Fee: $250.00
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. Students will have opportunity to learn traditional techniques of design, carving, and printing, and expand upon the tradition with creative inking and printing options to create contemporary interpretations of the medium. Explore by adding a line block or carving with a Dremel tool or other nontraditional mark making tools, all in a spirit of experimentation. Participants will leave with their own unique prints, and with newfound skills and appreciation of the process.
Materials Fee: $40 Paid at time of workshop.
Special Tools or Equipment: It would be helpful for students to bring a pad of newsprint, about 14″ x 17″ or larger. It’s useful for making preliminary sketches, and for tucking finished prints into for safekeeping and transport. Also, images (photos, sketches, etc.) they’d like to work from, although it would be great if we could draw and sketch from the farm environment; there’s so much there to inspire! We’ll be working on 8″ x 10″ blocks.
