Learn the basics of relief printmaking with an introduction to woodcut, and print your very own works on paper. This versatile and accessible technique can be applied to the creation of artist’s books, textile design, poster design and limited edition prints.

This class will cover carving out your image from a Japanese maple block, cutting techniques, safety, correct inking of a plate and hand printing. You will also be advised on how to hand colour your prints and introduce textures into your work.

You will take home a striking set of your own prints, your woodblock (double-sided, with the possibility of two quick images during the workshop or the second on your own time!), full instructions and resource pdfs so you have the ability to print at home using this technique!

Please note: This class requires at least five students to run. In the unlikely event that we don't get this number of students, we'll cancel the class and fully refund you and inform you via email, so please watch your email a few days prior to the class



Aside from this class, Work-Shop also has the following coming up:



What you'll get

    • All materials needed to produce your own prints
    • Resource and instruction sheets
What to bring
    • This workshop uses oil-based inks that can be difficult to remove from clothing. Remember to bring an apron or wear a studio-friendly outfit!

    • If desired, bring a photo or sketch (roughly 10x11 cm) to trace on to your block – but you are welcome to freehand a new piece!

Suitable for

This class is perfect for beginners - no prior experience is needed.

This class is a great indoor activity idea for a birthday, hens party, team building activity, corporate event, bucks party or Christmas party.
