WOODBLOCK ENGRAVING WITH DAVID FRAZER
Join master printmaker David Frazer for an introduction to the romantic age-old printmaking medium of wood engraving, which has been used traditionally to illustrate books and newspapers, perfectly suited to narrative and poetry.
David will introduce himself and his work and then show how to create a design on a plastic engraving block to trial the tools and cutting techniques. After printing the trial designs, participants will start to create their design on an end-grain lemon-wood block. David will give instruction on preparing the blocks and transfer the drawing onto them and then cutting. Finally you will learn how to print your design on a press and how to print by hand using a spoon.
