What is a Woodcut?

Here is a question that we often answer to our clients.  Woodcuts have a lot more work in them than first appears to the unpracticed eye.  Without actually seeing how the process is done, few people can grasp even the concept of how a woodcut print is made.

The Museum of Modern Art (MOMA) has some very informative videos that explain how woodcuts are made.  We suggest you take a look.  Click here to see the MOMA Woodcut Video
