Reclaimed Woodblock Printing Workshop

30 Carrington Rd, Marrickville NSW 2204

Saturday 18 May from 10am to 2pm Thursday 1 August from 6pm to 10pm Thursday 17 October from 6pm to 10pm Thursday 19 December from 6pm to 10pm

In this workshop, you'll learn the fundamental techniques of woodblock printing using repurposed plywood.

Woodblock printing (similar to Lino printing) is a super approachable method of making prints with bold and classic results. With access to a small printmaking press and guidance on hand printing methods for home use, you'll discover the joy of bringing your hand-carved ideas to life on paper.

If you’ve already got a bright idea in mind, you can bring an image from home — the workshop will cover how to easily transfer these to woodblocks. Fergus will also share tips and tricks for utilising other reclaimed materials, and what you can do with your woodblock once you’ve finished printing.

No prior woodblock or printmaking experience is needed. Just come ready with a creative outlook, and this workshop will equip you with the skills to craft stunning woodblock prints that leave a lasting impression.

*Please note; the images above use a Lino block, however, the process is the same as for woodblock printing.
