White-Line Woodblock Printing

ID : 7744   
« back to classes page

The white-line woodblock printing technique was developed in the early 1900s in Provincetown, Massachusetts by a group of artists, including Blanche Lazzell and B.J.O. Nordfeldt.  The collective, known as the Provincetown Printers, created a simplified alternative to traditional Japanese woodblock relief printing that allowed artists to re-use the same block for more than one color.  Students will learn to cut the block, use watercolor to print, learn about different Japanese papers, and correct registration. The class includes demonstrations, group discussions, and individual instruction.  Projects involve painting on the block and printing each color multiple times to add opacity or keep transparency. Open to all levels of printmakers. Material list available online under course description.
