What you will do
3 hour workshop
Wednesday 27 March, 3, 10 and 17 April 2019
6pm - 9pm
You will be introduced to the process of wood engraving from preliminary drawings and design; transferring drawings to blocks; cutting blocks; choosing papers and proofing to printing a small limited edition of black and white prints.
The course includes health and safety in workshop, the care and use of wood engraving tools and the use of St Bride Foundation's numerous historic presses. The small class size ensures that students are able to have a press each during editioning.
You will study the work of historical and contemporary wood engravers. Tools, end grain wood blocks, paper and inks will be provided with advice on the purchase of tools.
The course provides an excellent introduction to wood engraving and the print workshop.
