Wood Engraving

Wood Engraving with Keith Pettit

We are pleased to welcome the renowned Wood Engraver, Keith Pettit, to teach a weekend of Wood Engraving. The image needs to be prepared in advance so that an accurate drawing can be traced down onto the small scale, end grain block. The block is usually set down upon a domed, leather sand bag for ease of manipulation and engraved with a selection of fine gravers to create a variety of marks. Using the traditional hand pulled Albion press, proofs can be taken at regular intervals.

Materials - inks, paper, cleaning materials included
Blocks not included, these can be purchased from the tutor on the day.
