INTRODUCTION TO WOODCUT
​with Janet Cathey
​​
This course explores the fundamentals of woodblock printing. We will focus on learning the processes involved in creating two-color woodcut prints. We’ll explore mark-making on wood blocks using many types of gouges, and explore layering ink colors. You’ll prepare a design, cut it into wood, ink, and print. You will learn how to properly register more than one carved block, thus layering ink colors, and creating more rich and colorful images.

Janet Cathey is a printmaker and member of Two Rivers Printmaking Studio in White River Junction, VT
