I’m particularly excited about this Chris Daunt wood engraving course at the start of September. Chris is a highly-respected member of the wood engraving world, an accomplished printmaker and he also makes the blocks for Lawrence Art Supplies and artists around the world. Please consider this unique opportunity to work in this special medium with a very experienced tutor and share with anyone who you think might be interested.
Saturday 10 September and Sunday 11 September
£140 + wood engraving blocks purchased directly from Chris
Two-day course where you will learn how to design an image and prepare a block, cut your design, and print it. The blocks are handmade in Chris’ workshop and will be either lemonwood or boxwood. Wood engraving is a very special medium in that you need to consider the balance of light and dark, the use of white line and silhouette to create powerful, delicate, graphic and expressive work. Thomas Bewick, Monica Poole, Eric Ravilious and Anne Desmet are all wonderful artists who work/worked in this medium.
