Color Reduction Woodcut 
Joe Marshall
4 Saturday mornings 9 AM–12 PM
February 1 – February 22
 
Pre-requisite: Students must have taken a
woodcut weekend or have a good handle on
woodblock techniques. Reduction woodblock
printing is a name used to describe the process
of using one block to print several layers of color
on one print. This usually involves cutting a small
amount of the block away, and then printing
the block many times over on different sheets
before washing the block, cutting more away
and printing the next color on top. This allows
the previous color to show through. This process
can be repeated many times over. In this
process only one block is needed, and different
components of an intricate design will line up
perfectly. We will approach color as value, with
three to four value ranges total.
Fee: $165 (Associates $145) All materials and
tools provided.
