Wood engraving

Wood Engraving is an art form that grew up in the 18th century to sit alongside text in metal type, printed on the manual presses of the day. Lines and textures are engraved with a range of tools on the end grain of a hardwood block, often a synthetic substitute nowadays, printed as a “relief” print.

Peter will explain about wood engraving tools, suitable inks for printing and the types of papers best suited for wood-engraved prints.
On this one day course you will be able to engrave a small (2″x3″) block to your own design, and print on a 19th century “Albion” type press. The course is suitable for beginners and those with some experience.

All materials and tools will be supplied by the tutor.
