NEW! White Line Woodcuts
with Judy Mensch
White line woodcut was developed in the early 1900’s in Provincetown, Massachusetts by a group of artists, including Blanche Lazzell and B.J.O. Nordfeldt, who wanted an alternative to traditional Japanese woodblock printing. They were interested in simplifying the process and worked out a way to use one woodblock instead of several, one for each color. We’ll focus on cutting the block, registration, using watercolor to print, and experimenting with different Asian papers. In some ways these prints are like monoprints or unique, one-of-a-kind images. Each color is painted on the woodblock, then hand printed to create a transparent or opaque surface. There is a materials fee included in the tuition for this course. This class is for adults and mature teenagers of all skill levels.
All printmaking classes include 2 hours a week of open studio time.
