Woodcut and Chine Collé: Online & In Studio Combined Course
Discover the expressive qualities of this traditional, simple relief printing method using a combination of soft plywood and lightweight coloured papers. Working with artist Joanna Bourne, you will be shown how to cut an image into the ply, print it and develop the print using different Korean papers which are applied onto the image under the ink.
This course will take place over 3 sessions, one on Zoom and the other two in-person at Northern Print. This course is suitable for complete beginners or those wishing to refresh their knowledge. It will enable you to start the course at home and then come into Northern Print to continue cutting and then print your block. You have the option to buy the course only, if you have all the materials at home, or buy the course plus a pack of materials. The materials will be sent out before the start of the course. If you want to provide your own materials, you can check what you will need from the list below.
Upon completion of this course you will be able to take out a studio membership if you wish and following a simple induction will be able to use the Albion press to print your woodblocks.
For this course you will need all of the items on the list of materials below. If you have all of these materials then you can purchase the course only, however we are selling the items in a kit which you can purchase separately here for an additional £25 +P&P if applicable.
The materials will be sent to you before the start of the course so when booking, please allow time for posting.
