Not only is woodcut printing one of the oldest high-pressure techniques, it is also one of the most prolific.
Despite the starting restrictions, this working method allows you to achieve an impressive aesthetic and artistic quality. To discover the complexity of woodcut, the students follow step by step the sequence of this very particular technique, with its specific challenges.
Following the entire artistic process – from cutting the wood to hand printing – allows the participant to creatively explore all the valences of the technique and accentuates the enjoyment of discovery.
