6pm - 9pm
This evening workshop is intended for existing wood engravers and those who have already completed a wood engraving course at St Bride, purchased their own tools and wish to make further progress.
It is an opportunity to bring blocks you are working on for individual technical and tutorial support to help with designing/cutting blocks, sharpening tools and printing. You will be able to use St Bride Presses, inks, paper with some tools available but as wood engravers it is expected that you will bring your own type high blocks, tools and (if editioning rather than proofing) your own specialist papers.
