Art course

A three-part woodcut course. Woodcut is a relief printing technique in which a block of wood is used as a printing plate. The image is carved into wood with special gouges. The artist Tarrvi Laamann is one of the few Estonian printmakers who has learnt Japanese woodblock printing in Japan under a Japanese master. He has explained why he prefers woodblock printing in the following words: “You never know what the end result will look like exactly because wood can play crazy tricks on you. […] This makes the whole thing interesting; there are so many variables.”

In the course, you will get to know the peculiarities of Japanese woodblock printing, the gouges and how they are used.
