What is a woodblock print? How is it done?

Come and explore the process of developing woodblock print from beginning to end with local artist Carlin Menzin on Wednesday, May 29 at 5 pm in Room 117. You will look at ways to develop ideas and explore technical issues peculiar to this medium: how to choose and prepare wood, transfer images, carve and print multiple plates.

Explore printing in monochrome and color and maintaining a safe studio. Bring your questions, ideas, and a willingness to participate.
