What is a white-line woodcut? Why use the wood when you can just paint on paper? Who came up with this idea? Come away from this workshop not only having made your first white-line woodcut, but also learning about the history, the artists past and present who are connected to it, and some of the whys. A visit to Brophy's studio in Provincetown is included.
Workshop Materials List
Sally Brophy has been creating white-line woodblock prints for more than a decade. She studied the technique with Kathryn Smith, who was taught by her grandmother, artist Ferol Sibley Warthen. Warthen learned from Blanche Lazzell one of the first artists to develop the art form in Provincetown. This lineage of women printmakers represents both the rich legacy and the vibrant contemporary community of white-line artists that continue to create on Cape Cod. Brophy is represented by Kobalt Gallery in Provincetown. www.sallybrophy.com
