Multi Block Wood Cut Printing

26 Oct 2019 - 27 Oct 2019

Based on the tradition of ancient Japanese woodblock printing and its unique registration method with a contemporary application.

Students will print using two different inking techniques: by hand with barens using traditional pigment technique and combined with relief inks and small brayers.

This relief printing technique uses non-toxic studio practices and all cleaning is done with water. Students will learn the printing process with an emphasis on technique and a variety of paper types. 

Day one will include image preparation and transfer methods onto the block, demonstration of carving techniques and the maintenance and sharpening of tools. Day two will focus on printing with a discussion on the variety of papers available, the effective use of the paper as well as the link between paper and process.

The tutor, Roslyn Kean, has studied at the National Art School, Sydney, Post Graduate Printmaking at Slade School and undertook a lectureship at the Slade School of Art, London. She also undertook graduate research at Tokyo National Uni. of Fine Arts in Woodblock Printing. She has taught at the College of Fine Arts, University of NSW, Sydney ANU, Canberra, and is the Director of The Stables Print Studio, Sydney.

Cost: $236. Class takes place from 10am - 4pm on both Saturday 26 and Sunday 27 of October 2019.

Limited places available. Book early to avoid disappointment. Information on how to enrol in this class can be found on our Art Classes page.
