Discover the expressive qualities and material potential of relief printing through formal and experimental approaches. Esther Neate teaches a range of mono-print techniques and the use of woodblock with traditional and contemporary applications. Learn how to use the printing press, brayers, stencils and woodcut tools, and produce a small run of prints. Bring your ideas, photographs or sketches and see them transformed into unique woodcut prints.
