Wood engraving

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.

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 …
