Event description
Explore the exciting process of woodcut relief printing in this one day workshop.

About this Event

You will learn how to use a set of specialist woodcutting tools to carve an image or design into plywood to print from using oil based inks. You’ll be guided through the process in a step by step way and will have the opportunity to use our vintage Albion relief printing press, as well as hand burnishing methods which are ideal to use for further printing at home.

What experience do I need?

This workshop is ideal for beginners, intermediates and for people who have enjoyed lino cutting as a printing process before. It will be a mixed ability group. Those with previous experience may wish to learn a new technique and gain tutor advice and guidance.

What will I make?

You will make a series of woodcut relief prints on A4 paper. On a course of this length you should expect to make around ten prints to take home.

Who is my tutor?

Joanna Wilkinson is a practising printmaker, illustrator and bookbinder. She uses printing, collage, analogue/slow photography and sometimes even old style colouring techniques like felt tips in her work. Joanna has recently completed an MA Creative Practice at Leeds Arts University and is also a Co-operative Member of Leeds Print Workshop. She has been working with us over the last two years as a technician and tutor. She has experience in teaching a wide variety of different groups of people including children and adults.

Do I need to bring anything?

All materials and equipment will be provided, including plywood, carving tools, a range of colourful oil based inks and a range of papers. You may wish to bring inspirational sketches/images to assist you with your creative process.

If I can't attend can I get a refund?

We will issue a refund if you cancel no less than 14 days before the start of the course, after which no refunds will be issued. Please note Eventbrite’s booking fee is non-refundable.

By making a booking you are agreeing to our full course terms and conditions which can be found on our website here.

What if the course is cancelled?

We reserve the right to cancel the course for any reason (for example, insufficient bookings). We will endeavour to give at least 7 days notice if the course is cancelled and in the event of cancellation we will, of course, issue you a full refund.

Accessibility

Our aim is to bring printmaking to as many people as possible but, due to the nature of the building, Leeds Print Workshop is not wheelchair accessible. There is a step up into the building and four steps down to the toilets, and no accessible toilet facilities. Should you have any questions, or wish to discuss accessibility before booking, please don't hesitate to email us at hello@leedsprintworkshop.org

Please note: we regret that, for safety reasons, only those over the age of 16 will be permitted to undertake the course.
