In this two-day course on woodblock printmaking, participants make, cut, and print end grain blocks to produce an edition of prints. The instructor leads participants through preparing and engraving the relief surface and then through the finer points of printing wood engravings as the blocks move to the press. Wood and an assortment of engraving tools are provided. Come with an idea for an image to be realized during the workshop and leave with a small, printed edition!
