What You'll Do

A few carving implements, sandpaper, and ink are all it takes to transform a normal piece of wood into a reusable printing tool. During this collaborative woodblock printing workshop, master printer Shaun McCallum demonstrates the proper way to handle carving tools, which your group will use to help him carve a relief image into a soft block of wood. After carving away the image's negative space, the group then rolls ink over the block's face and uses a press to stamp the relief image onto pieces of fine art paper. At the end of the session, you take home your own two-tone art print.
