Contemporary Woodblock: Neither Fish Nor Fowl
Students of all levels engage in the physicality of woodblock carving and printing in this accessible and user-friendly printmaking workshop. They may embark on the exploration of narrative symbolism or simply the subject matter of flora and fauna to create a composition and tell a story. Blocks are hand-printed, and compositional emphasis is placed on the physical border of the block as well as the creation of pictorial space. We allow for a loose process of registration, focusing instead on imagery, pattern, surface, and experimentation with different substrates such as paper and fabrics.
