Block printing workshop with Endi Poskovic
Artspace in Raleigh is sponsoring a workshop November 8-9 with this artist and I just signed up.
See more of Endi Poskovic's woodcuts.
This is the class, I think there are a few more spaces:
Innovative Color Woodcut Printmaking From Multiple Blocks.
In this 2-day class we will learn a range of relief printmaking techniques, strategies, and concepts using two or more blocks for creation of multiple color woodcut prints.
From Japanese ukiyuo-e style printing to more expressive approach of the artists of Die Brucke and Taller de Grafica, this workshop will address the matters of learning the craft, making art, and developing innovative approaches towards creating one's own color woodcuts without a printing press or expensive printmaking equipment.
The first day will introduce various aspects of carving the blocks and how to design images for relief carving utilizing free-hand drawing methods, a photocopier, and the computer as a drawing tool.
The second day session will explore printing techniques from plywood using oil-based inks and individual approaches towards manipulations of inks, papers, and types of wood used in printing. At the end of this two-day workshop, you will have completed a set of blocks and a variable edition of prints.
