The white line woodcut was developed in the early 1900’s in Provincetown, Massachusetts by a group of artists, including Blanche Lazzell and B.J.O. Nordfeldt, who wanted an alternative to traditional Japanese woodblock printing. They were interested in simplifying the process and worked out a way to use one block instead of several. We’ll focus on cutting the woodblock, registration, using watercolor to print, and experimenting with different papers. In some ways these prints are like monoprints and Japanese woodblocks. Each color is painted and printed several times to create a transparent or opaque color. Open to all levels of printmakers.
