Wood Engraving (F21)

Instructor: Derek Bell

In this class you’ll use wood engraving tools to carve an image into a wood block, and then create prints based upon your wood engraving. The tools you’ll use will give you the ability to create detailed images in hard wood, and then turn those images into multiple prints using a variety of inks and papers. Come try your hand at this old yet engaging printmaking technique. This class meets in-person at AVA. A $35 materials fee will be applied at check-out.
