When this technique was invented in Provincetown over 100 years ago, it was a way to make Japanese Woodblock printing easier. Instead of carving a separate block for each color and registering the blocks, all of the colors are on one block. Each area is hand painted with watercolor, making this a type of printing that is very painterly. In this workshop we will carve a line drawing into a pine board on day one and then spend our second day learning how to print your woodcut with watercolors.
This tradition of printmaking, invented so long ago on the tip of Cape Cod, is still being carried out today by several area artists. No printing press is required for this technique and students can easily continue exploring the medium at home.
This class is appropriate for all levels. Please come prepared with an idea for an 8” x 10” print. Cost is $275 (all materials included). Class will run from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day with a 45 minute lunch break.
Workshop fee: $275
