Whiteline WoodcutWorkshop with Kate Hanlon
The Art of Whiteline Woodcut
July 22-26, 2024
Limited to 8 – 6 seats left
The white line woodcut, also known as the Provincetown Print, is a uniquely American form of printmaking, invented by artists working in Provincetown, Massachusetts in the early 1900s. In this method, beautiful multicolor prints are printed by hand using a single block, eliminating the need for a press or complicated registration systems. Getting from start to print can be surprisingly quick in this process. Students will have opportunity to learn traditional techniques of design, carving, and printing, and expand upon the tradition with creative inking and printing options to create contemporary interpretations of the medium. Explore by adding a line block or carving with a CNC cut block, Dremel tool or other non-traditional mark making tools, all in a spirit of experimentation. Participants will leave with their own unique prints, and with new found skills and appreciation of the process.
