Woodblock Printing Workshop with Stephen McKenzie

WHEN: Sunday, Aug. 6, at 10 a.m.
WHERE:
Hunterdon Art Museum, 7 Lower Center St., Clinton

Woodblock is a relief printmaking technique, whereby an image is carved into the surface of a block of wood and can be printed multiple times onto paper or textiles.

The workshop will begin with a brief history of the process and continue with a discussion on tools and materials. Demonstrations include transferring the image to the block, how to cut and translate the image and printing. You will go from learning about, to making a woodcut in one day. All woodcut materials provided. Sign up
