Intro to woodcuts

Design, Carve, Print 

$150 (materials included)

where:  Emery Art Studio 1110 Hawthorne St
when:   Wednesday evenings, 5:30-7:30pm

In this course we will practice the art of carving and printing woodcuts. Students will create an edition of 5-10 prints.

This foundational course will be a pre-requisite class required for future intermediate, advanced and focus classes.

The 4-week course focuses on carving and hand printing woodcuts. Students will learn both hand printing and press printing techniques in this workshop, and should arrive with a design concept in mind (see Homework below). Participants will carve their blocks, rip their paper to size, and handprint their own masterpieces. The course is taught in Claire’s spacious, working studio at 1110 Hawthorne Street, Unit B.

This course will work for raw beginners as well as experienced printmakers who simply want to hone their skills.


The class will be limited to 12 students with a minimum of 8 to run.

Materials Included:

  • 4”x 5” woodblock

  • hand-carving tools

  • paper for 5 5”x7” prints

Dates: Wednesday evenings 6-8 pm 

January 9, 16, 23, 30
