What you will do
3 hour workshop
Work with artist Michelle Avison on this three hour taster course exploring Woodcut. A great introduction to the technique, and a fabulous way to explore your creativity, the taster will cover ways of cutting the wood, staying safe with the tools, and take you through inking and printing. You will use plywood and work with the grain and knots in the wood to make expressive, immediate images. Bring personal images, photographs, drawings or other material to start your print from, and explore your personal stories, memories or ideas through the medium of printmaking. You will print in black ink on white paper, and explore both hand printing and use our wonderful Albion relief press to make your prints.
