Discover the expressive possibilities of Munch’s unique printing method. Munch began experimenting with woodcuts in Paris in 1896. The conventional way of making coloured woodcuts was to use a different plate for each colour, but Munch invented his own method to simplify this laborious process.
He cut his printing plate into several sections and applied different coloured inks to each section. 
In this workshop, you will make prints from pre-cut copies of the plates Munch used. One example we will work with is Munch’s Woman’s Head against the Shore.
This workshop is an engaging introduction to the creative possibilities of printmaking, and everyone will be able to achieve great results.
