Wednesday’s Wood Engraver

May 7, 2014

 

 

I was introduced to the work of Anne Hayward at a recent wood engraving course at Badger Press in Hampshire.  I am new to printmaking and always on the look out for inspiration, so when I found a copy of her  book Wood engraving and linocutting I was really pleased. Sadly, I have learned little about her except that she is painter and printmaker and her work has been exhibited at the Royal Academy and the British Library and commissions have included work for the House of Commons and the Folio Society

Anne studied painting and printmaking at Southampton College of Art, ( my claim to fame I also attended Southampton Art College) St Martins School of Art and the Institute of Education, London University.  She is a member of the Hampshire and Berkshire Guild of Craftsmen and the Society of Wood Engravers. I would like an original print by her and one day to meet her.  Meanwhile I just hope I can learn a little from her book and begin to make some meaningful marks in the wood!
