Join woodcut artist Valerie Lueth of Tugboat Printshop as she guides workshop participants in the drawing, carving, and printing of a black-and-white woodcut print of your own unique design! During this one day workshop, we will review the basic techniques involved in creating an original block print on paper.
About the Artist
Valerie Lueth is a woodcut artist living and working in Pittsburgh, PA. Valerie hand-draws and hand-carves multiple woodblocks to create her prints, laying color to paper in glowing ink layers, slowly building her imagery through deliberately stacked impressions. Valerie is alternatively known as Tugboat Printshop—the name of her self-owned print studio and online shop—where she produces and sells her original woodblock prints independently in limited edition. Tugboat Printshop has been in operation in Pittsburgh since 2006 and is an internationally recognized artist press.
About this Series
We are thrilled to offer three hands-on printmaking workshops that connect contemporary printmakers and their process to Imprinting In Their Time: Japanese Printmakers, 1912–2022. The exhibition will rotate three times throughout the run of the exhibition. During each rotation, please join us for a printmaking workshop with a different regional artist. The workshops will unfold with techniques featured in the exhibition, including linocut, reduction printing, and woodblock.
