Woodblock Carving

Tuesday, May 4th | 6:00pm-9:00pm | Woodblock Carving


In this class students will learn one of the oldest forms of printmaking—woodblock carving! Woodblock carving is a relief method where wood is carved away to create an image. Students will watch demonstrations on each step: creating an image, transferring the image to a wood block, carving, and hand printing. They will then create their own woodblock, carve it, print, and leave class with prints worthy of framing.

Please note: No experience necessary. Please come to class with ideas for your woodblock, or a 6x6 in. mirror copy of your image. The ideal image has bold shapes or lines to make carving easier.

This class is appropriate for ages 14+.

This class will take place indoors at Rochester Brainery located at 176 Anderson Ave. F109, Rochester, NY 14607.
