Woodcut Printing Course

Woodcut Printing Course

On this one day course Saturday 11th August 10 - 4 you will be making small block prints. Your tutor for this course is Jane Mowat. Jane has developed a way of printing which suits the way she works. Her blocks are too large or uneven in surface to print in a conventional way using a press. Having inked up the blocks she burnishes the image onto fine papers, rubbing the back with a wooden spoon, low technology and great results. Each print varying slightly from the next, so each image is unique in its own way.
Jane Mowat is an artist living in Somerset. She is known locally for her relief carvings and also her large scale woodcuts. These are printed by hand in her studio at Hurstone Studios, located on the edge of Exmoor. She lectures part time in fine art and visual culture in a Further Education college.
In this one day course you will learn a simple method of printing with a woodcut block, fine paper and a wooden spoon. A technique which your tutor Jane Mowat has developed for printing her own large woodcuts.
Price £65, bring a wooden spoon and a mallet if you have them! Wood and paper and all other materials will be provided.
