5 Week Relief Printing with Luke Wade
Tuesday 21 February- 21st March 2023
tutor Luke Wade
Relief printmaking is suitable for simple effective monochrome designs and single colours on contrasting paper. Areas of different colours can also be painted onto the block and printed simultaneously as in Chinese and Japanese art, while more complex images can be produced by printing successive layers of colour. This is achieved by either multi-block printing or by reduction printing, where a single block is cut away after each colour has been printed.
each method brings its own possibilities and results.
