€30 Plus €1.50 Online Booking Fee 

This workshop aims to introduce the participants to the art of woodcutting. 

As a woodcutter who has worked in the medium for the last 10 years I have been honing my craft and bringing my own creative touch to the process, which I have been calling painted woodcuts. 

The workshop participants will go through the entire process from drawing to cutting and painting their own piece of woodcut art which they will then be able to take home with them. They can do a self-portrait or choose an image from a book / magazine they bring as source material. 

 The goal is to learn more about woodcutting and to find relaxation in the process. There is an aspect of mindfulness involved in the practice as you need to give all your concentration to the wood and forget about external issues or thoughts. 

 Participants can range from a novice to experienced and don’t need to have any background in drawing or art. We will go through it all in the workshop.

Tickets for this event cannot be refunded, exchanged or transferred in any way unless the event has been cancelled or rescheduled.
