Spit bite is a process for those that love the gestural mark of watercolor. We will work with brushes directly on the plate as if painting on canvas.  Spit bite, or “Lavis,” can be used to add tone to existing line etchings, or in combination with other intaglio techniques. No prior spit bite experience is required. Our scale will be limited to 12” x 12” for the studio. All materials, excluding brushes, are provided by the workshop.

Join Tugboat Printshop as they talk in depth about their collaborative color woodcut prints & process. Artists Paul Roden and Valerie Lueth will discuss their daily operations running a start-up artist press & show examples of their many original color woodcut prints published over the past 7 years working together. The artists will demonstrate the printing of one of their full color prints & will have additional examples of their work and blocks for browsing.


Paul Roden and Valerie Lueth are the collaborative woodcut artists Tugboat Printshop. The couple has been publishing their traditionally hand-crafted color woodblock print editions from Pittsburgh, PA since 2006. Their intricate color woodcuts celebrate the natural world and our relationship to it. With extreme focus on craft and detail, the artists build idealistic, meticulously patterned worlds with their printed images. Rich color is layered in multiple impressions from hand-drawn, hand-carved and individually printed wood blocks. Tugboat Printshop's narrative is one of sustainability, resourcefulness, and upbeat do-good attitude. To view Tugboat Printshop's woodblock prints, visit
