Printmaking Workshop: “Making Japanese-Style Woodcuts on the Letterpress”

Scripps College Press
Claremont (Southern California)
(909) 607-3866

This two-day workshop will provide a hands-on introduction to Killion’s methods of blending Japanese-style woodcut printmaking techniques and letterpress printing using oil-based inks. On the first day, Tom will introduce students to Japanese carving tools and their use, and students will spend the day carving a wood or linoleum “key” block. At the end of the day, the key block image will be transferred to a second “color” block, which students can begin to carve as well. The second day will be devoted to printing a two-color image from students’ blocks, using the key block registration technique on Vandercook proof presses. Blocks, tools, inks and Japanese papers will be provided. Students are encouraged to bring a 5×7 design for a relatively simple two-color image.

9:30-4:30 each day. Limited to 12 students. $175.00 includes most materials.
