During this workshop students will draw, carve, and print MDF wood blocks in a classic calavera or Dia De Los Muertos style. Dia De Los Muertos and printmaking have a deep rooted history together. Jose Guadalupe Posada was a printmaker living in Mexico City who helped bring wide popularity to the calavera/catrina imagery. Students are encouraged to bring a sketch to the workshop, there will also be some pre drawn woodblocks available if you would like to use those. Students will carve with relief printmaking tools (u-gauges and v-gauges) that will be provided and print the blocks by hand using various types of barens. At the end of the workshop students will have completed their woodcut and made 1-3 prints.
