This two-day workshop 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.
The workshop will cover all aspects of wood engraving including historical context, image design, block preparation, correct use of engraving tools and hand printing. Students will produce a black and white image of their own design and print a small edition. All specialized materials and equipment will be provided.
