Developed in Providence, MA in 1915, the White-line woodcut employs minimal cutting to create colorful, unique prints. Lines are cut into the block to delineate the image and inked with watercolor using a common paintbrush, confining colors to the separated spaces. While the carved lines print white, the raised areas achieve variegated color—solid or blended. No press is used in this process, and your projects can be taken with you to work at home.
Think you know the process? Advanced students will experiment in blending, fading, and working reductively to create ever more color and variation.
Note: This class will not be held on Labor Day.
