Colour Woodcuts Workshop


Colour Woodcuts Workshop

WHAT: Basil will demonstrate various ways in which woodcuts can be printed onto Japanese papers using water-based inks and a baren. Participants will also be introduced to a hand-applied colour process using powdered pigment. This printing method which doesn't rely on a press, uses only water-based pigments and inks is something that can be safely done at home and the resultant prints have a wonderful subtlety and sophistication!

WHEN:  Saturday 1st and Sunday 2nd November, 10am to 4pm

COST:$300 (including all materials)  

Packsaddle Studio
New England Regional Art Museum
106-114 Kentucky Street
Armidale, NSW 2350

For convenience we will work on a standard sized block of Kauri pine ply which is 295 x 195mm approx.

Materials will be supplied but students will need to bring:

  1. Lino/woodcut tools if they have them
  2. Xacto knife & scissors
  3. Old clothes or aprons
  4. Disposable surgical gloves (small box)
  5. Personal face mask (paper) for mixing powder pigment
  6. Drawing pencils, small brushes and drawing paper
  7. Ideas, sketches
  8. Rags for clean up.

If any of the participants would prefer to use the weekend to extend their knowledge of reduction printing using oil-based inks, the presses will also be available and they can produce a small edition while the other activities are going on.
