Learn the process of woodcut printmaking, in and out! We will cover the history of woodcut printmaking and how it is applicable to our contemporary world- history of classical prints, to street art. We will create woodcut images, carve them, print them, and introduce collage, taking the image beyond the piece of paper, into a new realm. We will be making one of a kind prints and discover the magic in experimentation. We will experiment with color, printing on different types of paper, and cutting into our prints to create new works of art.
Trading prints with each other students is strongly encouraged! You may leave this workshop with a portfolio full of prints!

About the Instructor | Kate Dedlow
Art making began when Kate was a child. She is continually exploring, fascinated by nature and the many manifestations of beauty, strength, and power that nature has the power to show us. Her studio practice is fueled by the fascination with the natural landscape as a means in which to communicate and articulate ideas of wild, raw, organic, mystic, spiritual, sacred.
Kate has shown in galleries and museums nationally, and internationally in group shows with other artists, art collectives, and independently. She graduated with a BFA in Printmaking from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY in 2012 and has since managed and worked with several print shops and art organizations such as Drive By Press (Nashville, TN), Hanger 18 (Oakland, CA), Non-Grata (Estonia), Self Help Graphics (LA, CA), SFCB (SF,CA), Art Students League of Denver, as well as touring colleges with Drive By Press sharing the love of printmaking and conducting workshops and artist lectures.
Kate is a teacher and artist living in Berkeley, CA.
