Visiting Artist Francine Affourtit: Collaborative Relief Printing - Working Large


Developing large-scale works can be a daunting task. This workshop will teach you the process of producing large-scale works by working collaboratively with your classmates to create a multi-block print. By working together, we can create while learning. Each student will design and carve one 10”x10” woodblock which become part of a larger print we will produce together. By tackling each step in the process in this one-day workshop, students will have the opportunity to test and trouble-shoot the technique while taking part in a fun and low-pressure community project.  Following this workshop, students will gain the knowledge, skills and hopefully inspiration to produce large-scale works on your own. The workshop will also address basic carving techniques as well as using and mixing inks for relief prints. Stencils and other techniques to add layers to your print will also be introduced.


This course is suitable for all levels. Individual attention from the instructor will allow each student to maximize their potential for this project based on their current level of expertise.
