EAST/WEST MULTI-BLOCK COLOURED WOODCUTS 

WITH ROSLYN KEAN 

May  22 & 23
10am-4pm

Limited Spots Available

This course is an in-depth approach to the versatility of relief printing from wood by hand.  It will teach all aspects of multi block woodcuts combining both the exacting registration methods of traditional Japanese woodcuts with the more expressive style of German expressionist prints.

The variations of creating an image on the block for carving will be introduced including the direct drawing through to the indirect transfer of image and a combination of both.

The techniques of carving will be taught along with the sharpening of tools using Waterstones. 

Registration is of prime importance and the” Kento “method of exacting registration will be used. Printing will be done with the use of Akua soy-based inks which are applied by small brayers (rollers). 

Various papers will be introduced including oriental papers and European smooth faced papers .

Japanese shina blocks and local sourced 6mm plywood as well as a selection of papers will be supplied as part of the course fee
