WOOD ENGRAVING (RELIEF PRINTING) COURSES

Introduction to Wood Engraving (4 Weeks)

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.

The course provides an excellent introduction to wood engraving and the print workshop.

Wood Engraving (Relief Printing) Tutorial Evening

This evening workshop is intended for wood engravers who have already completed a St Bride Wood Engraving Course.

It is an opportunity to bring blocks you are working on for individual technical and tutorial support to help with designing/cutting blocks, sharpening tools and printing. You will be able to use St Bride Presses, inks, paper with some tools available but as wood engravers it is expected that you will bring your own type high blocks, tools and (if editioning rather than proofing) your own specialist papers.

Cost: £50

Dates:

19 October. 6pm - 9pm


23 November. 6pm - 9pm
