CLOSED Landscape Woodcuts with Nikki Barber

CLOSED Landscape Woodcuts with Nikki Barber


Landscape Woodcuts

April 6 & 13, 2019

9:00 am - 3:00 pm, Saturdays

This course is an introduction to relief printing, focusing on landscapes in woodblock. Skill and technique will develop as class participants create landscapes through reductive relief printing techniques. Class participants will learn how to employ safe wood cutting techniques, use oil-based inks, and generate original prints. Students will work from photographs or drawings to design, carve, and print their own landscape studies. Upon completion, participants will have an expanded toolkit of visual arts vocabulary and way of thinking artistically through the production of original and contemporary prints.

Carving tools will be available to share, but you may bring your own. Nikki recommends the Power Grip carving tools, available on Amazon. These tools are carried locally by Rockler’s near Northgate and in South Center.

22”x30” sheets of Rives BFK paper will be available to purchase in class at $6/sheet, but again, you may bring your own
