Wednesday’s Wood Engravers …

October 8, 2014

As I prepare for my wood engraving workshop this weekend I search again for inspiration. While I am not particular about chickens, ducks or country cottages I do find the little images useful; even if they are a little out of my league.  

Margaret Pilkington was a leading engraver taught by Noel Rooke and so respected she was the secretary and then the chairman of the Society of Wood Engravers from 1924-1967.

Millicent Jackson, too was another of Rooke’s pupils at the Central Technical School.  Who, was with others praised by Malcolm Salaman in the series The Masters of modern etching and other journals of the time.
