Woodblock Prints - Workshops & Demonstrations

The "reduction block" process of wooodblock printing uses only one block for each finished print. The artist first carves away what is to remain white and then prints the lightest color. Then she carves away what is to remain of that lightest color and prints the next lightest, and so on for reach of the colors until only the areas for the darkest color remain on the block. This method is easier to register (or place each successive color exactly in the right place) but only small editions can be printed.
