Printmaking: White-line Woodcut

$200 Purchase required to enroll

White-line woodcut printmaking was developed in the early 1900s by artists in the Provincetown Art Colony as a way of creating color prints without multiple blocks or a press. With only one carving tool, a block of wood, a piece of paper, watercolors and a wooden spoon you can print a lively, multi-colored print using their simple process. Just bring your ideas and you will leave with one or two completed prints, plus the knowledge and skills to make more on your own after the weekend is over.

About the instructor: A native of rugged and alluring northern New England, Hannah Phelps’ woodblock prints are an ongoing exploration of the world outside her window and the forces at work there. With either brushes and a wooden spoon or rollers and an etching press, she creates seascape and landscape white-line woodcuts and jigsaw relief woodblocks inspired by beach walks, plein air painting adventures and hikes with her dogs. Her award-winning woodblock prints have been shown and collected throughout the US. Exhibits include the Washington Printmakers’ Gallery National Small Works Exhibit, the Children’s Museum of New Hampshire, the American Color Print Society’s Annual Exhibit and many sponsored by the League of New Hampshire Craftsmen.
