This past weekend Starpointe Studio had a full class of folks to learn wood engraving! It was an intense two days, but was very successful – each participant learned about the material, tools, history and process of wood engraving and then created an engraving of their own design. After each person printed their edition, we participated in an age-old printmaking tradition: the print exchange!
The students of wood engraving have patience, and they engraved and proofed and engraved and proofed so many times to refine their images – all this work in 14 hours! I’m so proud of what they accomplished – wood engraving is not easy or intuitive for most.
