Teacher: Jun Lee

What you'll learn in this carving class:

Woodcut is considered to be the earliest of all printmaking methods. Students will directly draw their image onto a 16” x 20” wood block. They will begin carving their block after having different types of line carving demos to demonstrate the use and execution of black and white lines in the creation of an image, followed by printing their block.

The emphasis in this class is to introduce the novice to the following techniques:
  • types of wood
  • surface preparation
  • image design
  • carving techniques
  • tool maintenance
  • inking
  • pressing a print
Students are encouraged to design their own image and can expect to complete a small edition of black and white prints at the completion of the workshop.

Most materials will be provided. Students will be emailed a list of materials to bring to class upon registration.
