About This Class

Prints from woodcut blocks have enchanted people for thousands of years.

In this class, you'll learn all about woodcut printing and create a design of your own. We'll see the differences between Japanese and Western woodcut printing styles, get inspired by looking at some great work from around the world, and have a look at how the tools and print registration work.

You can enroll in this class as a new printer, or if you've already taken my Intro to Block Printing or Linocut Printing classes, you'll have the basics (and some of the tools) you need to dive right into our class project.
