for you? This workshop provides the perfect

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.

New for 2014 will be a print subscription from , me and Mo Ichido Publishing.  Mo Ichido is a new print publisher I created to help spread the word and image of printmaking, this is my first subscription. When you subscribe you receive 1 print per month for a year. This is a great opportunity to support Mo Ichido Publishing and printmaking, while building your print collection. The name of the subscription is “The Invisible Journey”, and each print is like a chapter heading from a longer/larger story. Centered around a trained Shadow Shaman, named Maze. All prints in “The Invisible Journey” are cut on 6′ x 8″, 3/8″ Shina plywood blocks, in three to four colors. Handprinted on quality paper, each print is signed and chopmarked by me the printmaker. It also includes a handmade folio of acid-free materials. This way you may look at the print at your own pace and have the story unfold. The subscription fee is $35 a month through PayPal or $420 for the year through Square, forms will be available at Open Studio.
