Wat je gaat doen

Due to COVID-19 I will be running my current workshops as either on a one-one basis or as a group maximum of 3 people - this helps to ensure safe social distancing and good hygiene in my studio.

The workshop is about learning the use of traditional Japanese hand tools, the process of inking wood blocks, printing on different types of handmade printing paper and developing a new understanding of various techniques in woodcut art. All of which enable you to make numerous fine art prints to take away at the end of the session!

Intro - Cups of tea, coffee or soft drinks followed by some words from me on my printmaking career and a round the table 'meet and greet' from everyone to begin the day.

Stage 1 - We will cover the use of hand tools to design, draw and cut woodblocks and explore the process of hand printing using traditional Japanese barens (circular discs wrapped in bamboo) and rollers on three types of paper.

Stage 2 - Delve a little deeper, showing you how to use multiple blocks and reduction-cutting techniques to create more complex multi colour prints.

Stage 3 - This a perfect opportunity to make multiple prints through editions, ending the final part of the session by experimenting with your favourite design or playing various colours.

Stage 4 - Everyone’s individual prints wrapped in sheets of tissue paper and rolling up into tubes for safe passage home.
Other things to note
Please bring any visual material that may be of inspiration - photos, drawings, patterns, text, books etc. I do have a lovely library of books on printmaking, plus a brilliant portfolio of prints other workshops. Aprons will be provided but please do wear sensible work clothes as it may get messy!

I am a practicing artist, and my passion for woodcut printing began 15 years ago whilst studying printmaking on my Degree at University of Brighton. In 2006 I completed my Masters Degree in printmaking at Camberwell - University of the Arts London. Teaching this ancient process is an experience I find continually exciting, and working with new printmakers to help them achieve brilliant results and learn new skills is so much fun. Everything made in the class is by done by hand - all woodblocks and prints are the individual's to keep, with tubes provided at the end of the workshop for prints to be safely taken away.

Waar je naartoe gaat

We will all be working together in my art studio around a large workbench, which is the perfect creative environment for lots of fun and focus in engaging, high-impact woodcut art in my 900 square ft studio. The high ceilings, amazing light and excellent facilities make it a very special place to be - producing an array of experimental prints! Meeting curious and newly creative people in sharing this unique experience is so important to the day.

This one of a kind workshop was such an amazing experience for both me and my partner. We had the luxury to have it privately which it was a pleasant surprise as the space was big enough for more people. So I really appreciated that Alex took the time to think about our safety and also to give us the outmost attention. A massive big touch was the abundance on food and soft drinks he provided. Overall a much worthwhile experience. Will definitely continue with this art!

I had a brilliant time on this workshop, and would wholeheartedly recommend it. Do not let any beliefs about being bad at art deter you. Alex keeps it fun, informal, and tired of the experience to what you can do and what you want.

This is a really great course for anyone - from a novice to someone who wants to build on previous experience. Alex was an extremely good teacher and helped us work through every aspect of the printing process. I feel like I can continue trying woodcut printing at home with the skills I’ve learnt on the course. And would absolutely recommend this course.

It was a wonderful, creative and engaging day. I left the workshop feeling confident to continue to explore the technique on my own. Thank you Alex.

Great time! 7 hours pass by really quickly. Alex really knows his craft and spends time helping us with the process, balancing it with adequate time for our own exploration.

An amazing wood cutting experience. Alex was friendly and taught me techniques to make my first wood printing a perfect piece. Would recommend to my friends who comes to London.
