Colour Woodcuts Workshop
Colour Woodcuts WorkshopWHAT: 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)
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:
- Lino/woodcut tools if they have them
- Xacto knife & scissors
- Old clothes or aprons
- Disposable surgical gloves (small box)
- Personal face mask (paper) for mixing powder pigment
- Drawing pencils, small brushes and drawing paper
- Ideas, sketches
- 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.
