AT140 - White Line Printing Class

from 135.00

The white line woodcut or “Provincetown print” method was invented in the early 1900’s in Provincetown by a group of artists working to simplify traditional

Japanese woodblock printing. White line prints can be simple or elaborate, realistic or abstract. They are exquisite additions to any home, make great gifts and are extremely gratifying to complete.  Learn this low-tech method here, then continue printing in your home or studio! For any questions or further information, contact instructor at amyradin@comcast.net

Please bring to first class: A small selection of student-grade or better watercolor paints and palette or plate, a simple drawing or image to trace, 5 x 7 “or 8 x 10", a tablespoon, wooden spoon, or printmaking baren.

Amy McGregor Radin comes to us from Needham, MA.  We’re so grateful to have her share her unique and skillful talents with us.  She been creating white line woodcuts, also known as Provincetown prints, since 2002 after being inspired to learn the technique by an exhibit at The Museum of Fine Arts in Boston.  Devised by Provincetown artists in the early 1900’s, the white line method involves incising wood with a design, hand-painting each shape and transferring the color to paper using a traditional printer’s baren or other tool to create pressure.  While a given design can be printed many times over, each print is done individually and is unique.  She has been pushing the boundaries of the traditional white line woodcuts with outsized items and unusual perspectives. I enjoy experimenting with this hand-printing technique and relish the freedom to play with wood, color and shapes as this method allows.
