Thursday, May 16, 23, 30 & June 6
Time: 6:30 – 9:30 pm

Relief printing is the oldest form of printmaking. The most common form of relief printing is woodcut. An ink drawing is made on a wood block. The artist cuts away uninked areas, leaving inked areas raised. Printing ink is applied to the raised surface and a sheet of paper is laid on the block to take an impression by hand or a press.

Elizabeth will be teaching the reductive print method, which allows artists to create a multi-layer print with one plate, which is not only economical but a great challenge!

Elizabeth is an avid Plein Air painter and printmaker, she is also the founder of the Windsor & Essex Country Plein Air Society and Vice-President of Windsor Printmaker’s Forum. She received her BFA from University of Windsor.
