WOOD ENGRAVING

Wood engraving is at once the simplest and one of the most exquisite forms of printmaking. It is a form of relief printing where tools are used to incise fine marks into the surface and then, from these marks, a print is produced. It is an interesting form of printing where you work in mirror image and draw light not dark. You will engrave and print your own design.
