Woodcut Relief Printing

2nd June @ 10:30 am - 4:00 pm

£65.00

Spend a day learning how to use specialist woodcutting tools to carve your own design into high-quality plywood to print from. You’ll learn how to use oil based inks and use Leeds Print Workshop’s traditional relief printing presses, as well as other printing methods including hand burnishing. This is a great introduction to woodcut techniques.

What experience do I need?

This course is for beginners, intermediates and for people who have enjoyed lino cutting as a printing process before. An ideal follow on from our one day linocut workshops or our Introduction to Printmaking Course.

What will I make?

You’ll come away from the day with an edition of 10-15 woodcut prints onto A4 cartridge paper using a range of colours of oil based inks. You also gain some further inspiration for future relief printing projects.

Who is my tutor?

This course is taught by Mick Welbourn and Joanna Wilkinson.

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.

Mick Welbourn is currently the manager of the printmaking workshops at Leeds Arts University, where he has worked for more than twenty years. Over the years he has taught printmaking to adults as well as to A level, Foundation, Degree and Masters students.

Do I need to bring anything?

All materials and equipment will be provided, however, if you wish to bring inspirational sketches/images to assist you with your creative process then please do. Relevant books and examples will also be provided.

Accessibility

Our aim is to bring printmaking to as many people as possible. By their nature, some printmaking processes involve an amount of physical effort. Leeds Print Workshop is based in a basement studio at Patrick Studios, a bespoke venue for artists operated by East Street Arts. It is wheelchair accessible, with a lift, larger than standard doors and accessible toilet facilities. We recognise that everybody’s accessibility needs may differ, therefore please email us at hello@leedsprintworkshop.org to discuss any concerns you may have before booking. There is one blue badge car parking space to the side of the building on Rider Street, subject to availability.

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