Relief printing—as represented for example in woodcut prints—is probably the oldest printing technique of all, having been in use for several millennia throughout many different regions and cultures. It is conceptually and technically simple, yet due to many different available materials, tools and carving techniques this medium is very versatile.
In relief printing some parts of a given matrix are removed to form an image. Ink is applied to the remaining surface areas, and from there directly transferred onto the destination medium.
This course provides an introduction to the techniques and theories central to the practice of relief printmaking. Initially it provides students with a short overview of both traditional and contemporary relief printing processes, and printing practices. Following this more theoretical opening, the majority of the course will then be dedicated to the hands-on exploration of the limitless applications and materials of relief printing.
