This two-day, hands on workshop exploring the art of wood engraving is suitable for beginners or those with some prior printmaking experience who want to explore a new technique.
Wood engraving is a form of relief print that enables the creation of highly detailed, yet graphic images, usually on a small scale. Prints can be produced without a press and using only a small number of specialised tools, so it is suitable for those without a large studio space or budget.
This workshop will cover all aspects of wood engraving including: history of the medium with examples to see; image design; printing block preparation; correct use of engraving tools to create an image; and printing.
