Introduction to Wood Engraving with Kath Littler
Saturday 14th September
10:30 - 16:30
A new addition to our workshop offer, we are delighted to welcome artist and wood engraver Kath Littler to the gallery to share her skills in the craft of wood engraving. Suitable for beginners, the workshop will cover how to use engraving tools to make a variety of cuts for texture and tonal shading. Kath will help you to work out your design and transfer this to a woodblock. Taking prints from your wood engraving at various stages to continue developing it until completion. You will have a small edition of final prints to take home with you on the day.
All tools and materials will be provided apart from your own drawing materials. Please bring these along with a simple design including an area of black, an area of white, and 2 – 3 tones in between.
This should be small as the block will be about 5 x 7cms.
It would be helpful to bring a fat paperback book to support the block whilst cutting.( It is doubtful that you will have time to read it!)
