Woodblock Workshop

It's been a bit quiet on the blog.  I have not been feeling well the last couple of weeks.  After a second visit to the doctor, I am finally on some antibiotics and am feeling better.  Just in time for the printmaking workshop I have been taking this weekend at Wingtip Press.

Yesterday was the first day and we are going back today.  The instructor is James Bailey, an art professor at the University of Montana.

We are creating woodblock prints using mdf board (that you can get at the hardware store).

Here is the instructor with one of the blocks he had carved previously with some of his works displayed on the wall behind him.  Below is the design printed on a t-shirt.

We had a fairly large number of participants in this workshop, partly because it is leading up to another event in October, which I will tell you about later.

Here are some more of the instructor's artworks.  I think most of them are not woodblock prints, but linocut or something else.

Above are the progression of steps for a reduction print using Sentra board. 

We finish carving and printing today. So I will show you the results later.
