The Process.

Woodcut is relief technique of printmaking. Carving a image into the surface wood or linoleum, the artist leaves printing area level with the surface while removing the non-printing parts. Areas that the artist cuts away carry no ink, while characters or images at surface level carry the ink to produce the print.  The surface is covered with ink by rolling over the surface with an ink-covered brayer leaving ink upon the flat surface but not in the non-printing areas. The block is then put into a press either a rolling press or jack style press. Currently I am using roller press but there is a jack press in the works.
