This workshop is designed for both beginner and advanced relief printmakers. Beginners have the option to use a special Japanese style relief vinyl which is smooth to cut, and advanced printmakers can use wood to hone more advanced skills. Participants are encouraged to consider unusual perspective/viewpoint in concert with a dynamic use of light and shadow to create unique and memorable compositions in line with Chiaroscuro techniques. Image development, block preparation, carving techniques, registration, and both press and hand printing technique will be emphasized.

 

***Participants will have the option to work from the Blue EASY-to-CUT surface or Cherry Ply. Either will be provided and will be 12″ x 18″. PLEASE EMAIL MEAGHAN to confirm which surface you would like to use after you register for the class, as well as to receive recommended carving materials. mmorrow@contemprints.org. (more will be available for purchase)***
