Learn to hand cut woodblocks for printing using your own artwork or designs created or altered in class. If you have no drawings to consider, copyright free alternatives will be available for practice, along with a brief period of how to alter your work for an ideal print. Terminology is covered along with basic techniques and how to print when a press is not available. You will print approximately 3-4 times printing on papers, textiles, and creative alternatives. Each student is required to bring their own tools and supplies, along with pictures or drawings they favor.
ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR
Kenna Boles Prior, North Texas Artist/Freelance Designer. Kenna began her career publishing in crafting and textile periodicals until exposed to printmaking. Printmaking, while it is not her only love, she is constantly trying different techniques focusing on textures and conflicts of subject matter. Her provocative work is often redemptive in subject matter, rousing emotions of conflict seeking resolution. She often incorporates textiles and found or forgotten objects into her work by image or by using the items themselves. Kenna owns The Purple Farmhouse, and teaches special events, classes, and custom workshops.
