Wood engraving on Wednesday … words
In a few weeks I will be attending a wood engraving weekend workshop at Badger Press. These sessions for me have become a regular event, twice a year for about three years now. A time to immerse myself in the age old method of relief printing. It is steeped in old school methods and techniques, using wood and tools with teacher (s) with fine pedigrees as long as your arm.
It is a wonderful getaway from new age and modernity. I do practice at home but being with those who are happy to talk about wood, tools, paper and ink is a joy!
This little block is a work in progress; I hope it will be book-plate but until then …
