Simple Woodblock Printing

A two day workshop with Rod Nelson

Friday 6th & Saturday 7th September 2019

10 – 4pm in our Attic Studios

£140 for both days

Join this two day workshop with experienced tutor Rod Nelson and learn how to create prints from woodblock.

Making prints from woodblock produces images that cannot be made in any other way. It is a fascinating and versatile art and craft of ancient origin and modern artistic relevance. This basic course will familiarize you with techniques, processes, tools and materials sufficient to make a small print using more than one single colour. You will learn methods to ensure accurate placement of colour onto a previously printed block. It will be an eye opener for beginners and experienced artists alike. No previous experience is necessary.

About Rod Nelson

Rod, who lives near Nailsworth, has made prints most of his life. Having professionally worked with wood, he has very good technical understanding of the possibilities of the medium. He takes inspiration from many different sources – from nature, from landscape, and of course, from other artists and printmakers.

The artist who has had the greatest influence on his work was the maverick Japanese woodblock artist, Shiko Munakata whose work has a great sense of freedom, and respect for beauty and decoration. However, he has also drawn inspiration from other woodcut artists Europe (notably Germany), China and Japan.

As well as having work in exhibitions around the country, Rod’s work has been shown in various UK galleries, Shanghai, and in Germany. He was a founder member of the print-making cooperative Pine Feroda, and currently teaches woodcut at the renowned college of the arts and crafts at West Dean in Sussex, as well as at the Royal West of England Academy Drawing School, in Germany, in Holland, and in Nailsworth. www.woodblock.eu

He is co-author (with Merlyn Chesterman RE) of the book Making Woodblock Prints, published by Crowood Press which is available to buy at Pegasus Art Shop for £9.99 and can be signed by the author during the workshop!

Tea and coffee will be provided throughout the day, but please bring your own packed lunch.
