Farnham Maltings – Saturday 12th Sept 2015

Wood_engrave_dotsThis printmaking workshop will introduce and explore the similarities and differences between woodcut and wood engraving. Woodcut involves cutting into the side plank of a piece of wood using gouges, often creating bold designs. Wood engraving is much finer and involves carving into the end-grain using small chisel-like tools. We will explain how to prepare images for both techniques, transfer them onto the wood, make marks with the different tools and produce a selection of finished prints to take home. Both techniques are great for working at home in a small space. All materials provided and suitable for all levels.

Date and Time: Saturday 12th September, 10am – 4pm

Price: £40 per person (including materials and use of tools).

Venue: Farnham Maltings, Farnham, Surrey GU9 7QR
