Reduction Block Printing – Lynn Goldhammer - Saturday, Feb 10, 9:00-4:00 $62/$69/$75 (supplies included)
Reduction block printing was developed by Pablo Picasso. Previously when printmaking, a separate block was used for each color. With reduction block printing one block is used, printing from light colors to dark, and continually reducing the surface of the block surface to preserve the previous color. It's similar to working in watercolors in layering color. A very soft block will be used making the carving process very easy. A block with a design will be provided to learn the process on in the morning. In the afternoon you will create and work on your own design - come with an idea.
