"Woodcut Workshop with Dan Miller"
February 16-17, 2019
 

Don’t miss the opportunity to work with Dan Miller, a member of the PAFA faculty for five decades and a master of woodblock printing! Inspired by his surroundings in rural Pennsylvania and Maine and a love of his materials, Miller fuses the texture of the wood grain with his imagery of landscapes, birds, insects and portrait subjects. Beginning with a printing demonstration and a slide lecture illustrating woodcut’s history, Miller will lead students through the woodcut printmaking process: designing an image, cutting the woodblock, and printing in black-and-white and color. Topics will include equipment usage, paper selection and hand-printing techniques.
