Local woodcut artist Fred Dylla will teach a White-Line Woodcut class at the Rehoboth Art League Monday through Wednesday, May 10-12 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day.
White-line woodcut printing was invented over a century ago in Provincetown, Mass. This unique art form produces full-color prints from a single carved wood block. 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 then 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 so social distancing can take place. 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 to the first day of class. This is a true American art form that is little known outside of Cape Cod.
To register for the class, go to rehobothartleague.org or call 302-227-8408, Ext. 112. All classes are held at the Rehoboth Art League located at 12 Dodds Lane, Henlopen Acres.
