In this workshop, that I led from the 25th to the 29th of November, The Tanzanian artists have learnt new interesting techniques of woodcut. We have worked together as a team on two different subjects: cartography and gangsters.
For the first exercise, about cartography, they had to make research and sketches on lines and patterns. The woodcut were made as a serial of three A5 sizes printed with colors on Japanese Awagami paper.
The second theme was printed on big sizes with a steamroller machine (the same than to make roads) in black and white. Only few people use that crazy technique which was a first time in Tanzania and a good opportunity for the artist.
