The white line woodcut, also known as the Provincetown Print, is a uniquely American form of printmaking, invented by artists working in Provincetown in the early 1900's. In this method, beautiful multi-color prints are printed by hand using a single block of wood, eliminating the need for a press or complicated registration systems. This fun workshop offers the opportunity to learn traditional methods of design, carving and printing, as well as the chance to expand upon the tradition with creative inking and printing options to create contemporary interpretations of the medium. Participants will leave with their own unique prints, newfound skills and appreciation of the process.
Note: There is a materials fee of $75, paid directly to the instructor, which will cover one 8"x10" shina block and one piece of washi paper (which makes two prints) per day, as well as use of the instructor's tools, inks, palettes, etc.
Accommodations are available, if needed. Please inquire at email@example.com
