The Woodcut Course is open to all levels

Woodcut – or Relief Intaglio- is the oldest printmaking technique. Originally, precious wooden boards were used, but throughout the centuries, matrices of different woods and materials were eventually utilized. Woodcut has now developed into a more flexible medium, and is used by both traditional as well as modern printmakers. The possibilities range from black and white to colors; from miniature prints to large formats; from the artist’s book to printing on various types of cards, cardboards and unconventional materials.

This way, a specific but varied field of woodcut has come to life. Different and often unforeseen results are thus achieved, as artists reach their objectives through a wide range of expressive means.
