Masters engraving master class

The 2017 MA illustration students excelled in an August wood engraving workshop, with fine prints made quickly, using very small woodblocks.

This was a table-top two-day workshop, held on the third floor of Evolution House.

Students worked from drawings, from which they engraved images into the end-grain surface of Lemonwood. T. N. Lawrence Carbon Black Letterpress ink was rolled onto a great big sheet of glass, thence on to the blocks.

All impressions were made by hand-burnishing onto a cheap Chinese rice paper. We also used a more expensive Japanese paper, Arakaji Natural, for final quality prints. These were displayed and discussed.
