Whiteline Woodblock Printing

This class will teach students about Whiteline Woodblock Printing, a technique that creates multiple images using simple tools and without a printing press.  This 110-year-old art form was developed in Provincetown, Massachusetts by a group of women artists who were interested in Japanese Woodblock printing, but dismayed by the multi-block process.  Students will learn about the history of the craft, along with tools, printing, and how to develop images for printing. No printing experience is necessary. Newcomers welcomed!
