The Joy of Color– Reduction Block Printing with Wade Womack

 4  Week Workshop – Begins Sat. April 4

4 Consecutive Saturdays

APRIL:  4 – 25, 2020

Hours:     April 4:   10am-5 pm;      April 11, 18, & 25:   10 am-2pm

For this workshop series, Wade Womack will lead you through the process of reduction block printing, teach you how to think about line, design and composition using multiple color plates.  On week 1 you will design and carve the first color plate,  and print the full edition of that color. On week 2 the first print will be dry and you will carve into the same block to create the second color plate and print the entire edition with the second color, in registration. On the third week, the third color and so on.
You will love seeing the boldness and line quality created with this technique. Surprise yourself by creating art in reverse!  Your prints will be stored on a special rack to dry between classes and a few days after the final workshop date the prints can be picked up or mailed at cost. Materials provided:  linoleum blocks, water soluble inks, printing papers, and all tools for carving and printing.
What students need to bring:   1 graphite drawing 4×6 (use softer graphite 4B and above), water bottle, and sack lunch.
Note: transfer process will change the quality of original drawing. If you want to keep drawing pristine, bring a copy of original but keep in mind image will print in reverse and if direction is important you will need to flip image so left becomes the right and right becomes the left to keep the original orientation on final print.
