Wood Engraving | Basics and Beyond | Mellissa Read-Devine

Learn how to do printmaking by hand, using engraved blocks

In this workshop, we will take you through a meditative process using fine engraving tools on a wood substitute; this process goes back to the fifteenth century and is a beautiful medium for illustration, artwork, cards and bookplates.

Using the tutor’s tools, learn how to use the blocks, inks, papers and tools.
Activities: Design, transferring your image to the block, carving, and printing a small edition without a press. A print exchange at the end of the day is encouraged.
