Woodblock Carving with Gerry Cussen
Irish National Heritage Park, Ferrycarrig, County Wexford, Ireland
Exercise your brain through thinking of how to use negative space to create images. Practical design elements considered for ease of carving.
All materials and Japanese Ho-Sho paper provided. Do bring some fabric scraps and we can play around with printing on those also. The last couple of hours can be spent experimenting with any ideas you would like to try. Take home your personally-designed block,with 2 carved images either side, which you can reproduce many times. You could bring a design suitable to the carving technique (5×6 inches)…but don’t worry if not as I will have a folder of suitable images to choose from.
€100 per participant. (Pre-booking essential).
