Woodblock Printing with Pamela Dodds
Saturday, April 29, 2023 10am - 4pm
Turn a design of your choice, into a woodcut print! In woodcut printing, the wood is carved away, leaving the design on the surface to be inked and printed. This class will guide you in the use of wood carving tools, carving techniques, and printing your woodcut with black or coloured inks on a manual printing press, to achieve the effect you desire.
