Print Your Own Woodcut Christmas Cards
Using the Museum and other sources of inspiration, learn to design an image and transfer it onto a woodblock using wood cutting tools to carve the image. After practicing mark-making techniques, you will then print your own woodblock to produce ten Christmas cards. Afterwards you can take your woodblock away to print more at home.
Will Dyke studied at Harrow College, University of Westminster. He has also benefited from further tuition at West Dean College. He prints on an old Cropper Charlton press, producing limited edition prints, using wood and lino cutting methods. Much of his artwork is inspired by rural life and history. Many images are from studies he has made of exhibits at the Weald and Downland Living Museum, Singleton, where he is also proud to be a volunteer.
All materials will be included for the course but if you wish to buy further materials from the tutor this will be possible.
