In this 5.5 hr workshop, participants will be introduced to woodblock prints and will create their very own print. Participants will be introduced to a combination of eastern and western woodblock techniques, will learn all process of making a woodcuts (drawing of an image, transferring the image, carving the block, and hand printing the blocks). This exploration of technique will be paired with a lively discussion on the history of printmaking and a show and tell of contemporary prints.
