White-Line Woodcut Class at Rehoboth Art League to start Oct. 19

October 14, 2020

Local woodcut artist Fred Dylla will teach a White-Line Woodcut class from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday to Wednesday, Oct. 19 to 21, at the Rehoboth Art League.

White-line woodcut printing, invented more than 100 years ago in Provincetown, Mass., requires only basic painting skills. This unique art form produces full-color prints from a single carved wood block. This is a true American art form that is little known outside Cape Cod.

In this beginner class, participants will learn to create a conceptual drawing, transfer the drawing to a wood block, carve and paint the block, and finally transfer the image to the printing paper.

No previous knowledge of wood block printing or woodcarving is necessary. Class size will be kept small to facilitate social distancing. Masks must be worn.

The cost of the workshop is $190 for members and $225 for nonmembers. The instructor will provide all materials, except for watercolor paints and brushes, for a $35 materials fee to be paid on the first day of class.

To register, go to or call 302-227-8408, Ext. 112. All classes are held at the Rehoboth Art League, 12 Dodds Lane, Henlopen Acres.
