10 Woodcut printmaking with Michael Schlitz

Explore the processes required in woodcut printmaking. Learn approaches and philosophy towards image constructions, image development, tool sharpening, traditional image transfer techniques as well as carbon or rubbing techniques, colour printing, registration methods, hand printing, press setting and printing with a press. Over the week you will create a small body of work using woodcut methods.
Michael Schlitz has studied traditional Japanese Hanga in Awagishima Japan. Using a combination of Eastern and Western techniques in the construction of large scale woodcuts printed by hand, Michael’s imagery is primarily based on the figure in the landscape and reflects experiences felt within the environment he lives in, describing his work as principally autobiographical in nature. With a Masters of Fine Arts, Michael exhibits extensively and his work has been selected for various awards and projects. His work is included in the collection of The National Gallery of Australia and most State Galleries in Australia. Michael has taught printmaking in Tasmanian School of Art, ANU, University of Southern Queensland, RMIT and more. http://michaelschlitz.com/

Printmaker – Tasmania

Michael Schlitz' characteristic dark (yet playful) tenor relief prints express our interdependent links with nature but also to convey the mystery of inner states of feeling and emotion. He achieves a complex and subtle range of tonalities and contrasts through many depths of black/grey/white as well as the variety of depth and width in the line.
