Woodcut Reduction Printmaking


Over four Mondays in January I had the great honour of learning the art of woodcut reduction printmaking from Richard Tetrault at Malaspina Printmakers. We were encouraged to experiment and play. It was great fun. I worked on the underwater scene below. One block (pine plank) was used to create this 4 colour print. Scroll down to see the final print.
