What you will learn A two-day course where you will learn how to engrave a woodblock and print it using specialist tools and a relief printing press as well as burnishing by hand. Experience level No experience of relief printing is required. Experience with linocut or woodcut would be relevant for this course, but beginners/intermediate printmakers are welcome. Course programme Refine drawing/design and transfer to wood block. Learn how to use engraving tools to create tones and textures on a sampler block. Produce a wood engraving based on your own design. Final proofing and then a small edition. What is included All basic materials such as paper, tools and equipment are provided but you will need to buy your blocks directly from Chris, who will bring a selection for you to purchase. Other materials and printmaking papers will be available to buy during the course if you would like to try something a bit different or take some materials home to try out. *Or you can order your blocks directly from https://www.chrisdaunt.com/ Preparing for the course You will work on a small practice block and then on a larger final block (approximately 10 x 7.5 cm - other sizes available at the workshop). You will need to prepare an image/drawing that considers tone and detail, but do not try to anticipate what kind of marks you will be engraving as the interpretation comes through practice. Artist research: Chris Daunt, Monica Poole, Howard Phipps, Colin See-Paynton, Simon Brett, Paul Landacre, Gertrude Hermes. *Lunch* - you will need to bring your own packed lunch or Cranstons and Sainsburys are both just down the road if you want to do takeaway. Tea, coffee and biscuits are provided during the day. What next? By this stage you should have sufficient printmaking experience to become a Member and attend Open Access printmaking sessions.
