Woodcut printing is a physical, tactile process that is perfect for anyone who enjoys working with their hands. Using hand carving tools, students will learn to transfer an image to a woodblock and carve their designs using a wide variety of marks.
Participants will explore printing and registration techniques and come away with their own edition of prints.
Suitable for all levels, no prior experience is needed.
About the Print Instructor

Pamela Dodds’ practice in painting and printmaking explores the complexities and nuances of human relationships, primarily through figure-based imagery.
