Wood Engraved Christmas Cards with Kath Littler
Saturday 16th November
10:30 - 13:00
A great workshop as a taster to the art of wood engraving and as an opportunity for you to create cards to your own design this year for Christmas or other occassions. Kath Littler will show you how to use the engraving tools to make a variety of line, texture and tonal shading. She will show you how to make prints from your woodblock, adapt your design until completion and make a small collection of prints to take home.
Kath will provide the equipment and materials for the day and will let you have the information on where to buy materials to enable you to continue this fascinating craft at home. Please bring with you some ideas for your card design - this needs to be fairly simple, having an area of black and white and 2-3 tones in between. The block will be around 5 x 7 cms in size so keep this in mind when thinking about your design. It would be helpful if you could also bring a flat paperback to support the block whilst cutting.
