Three-part woodcut course. Woodcut is a relief printing technique that uses wood as the material for the plate. The image is cut into the surface using special knives and/or chisels. The artist Tarrvi Laamann is one of the few Estonian printmakers who has studied Japanese woodcutting in Japan under a master. He explains the use of his favourite technique as follows: “You never exactly know what the final outcome will be since wood can play insane tricks. […] The fact that there are so many different variables is what makes woodcuts so fascinating.” The course will teach the distinctive features of woodcuts, the use of cutting knives and the various techniques of cutting. 

The course takes place 24.08., 25.08. and 26.08. from 5.30 pm to 7.30 pm.

Instructor: Tarrvi Laamann
