You will be introduced to the process of wood engraving from preliminary drawings and design; transferring drawings to blocks; cutting blocks; choosing papers and proofing to printing a small limited edition of black and white prints.

The course includes health and safety in workshop, the care and use of wood engraving tools and the use of St Bride Foundation's numerous historic presses. The small class size ensures that students are able to have a press each during editioning.
