Introduction to Wood Engraving Beginners/Refreshers
Wood engraving is one of the simplest and most exquisite forms of printmaking. Using sketches and photographs, participants will receive a comprehensive introduction to the tools and techniques of wood engraving; cutting and printing onto lemonwood blocks to achieve diverse results from experimental, abstract cuts to detailed representational pieces.
By the end of the weekend, participants will have learnt how to prepare, cut, ink and print wood engraving blocks and will have created at least two small wood engraving prints to take home. Participants will have also learnt how to print blocks by hand and with a printing press.
This course is suitable for all levels of printing including complete beginners.
