It is good taste, and good taste alone, that possesses the power to sterilize and is always the first handicap to any creative functioning.

Check out our upcoming wood block courses at East London Printmakers!

Wood Engraving

Master printmaker Chris Pig is teaching a wood engraving course at ELP next month.

Wood engraving is a traditional printmaking technique developed by English engraver Thomas Bewick in the late 18th Century. In the 19th Century the technique was widely used for book illustration.

Wood engraving is favoured by Daumier and Doré for the delicate line work you can achieve and for fine, crisp detail. 

Chris cuts and prepares the wood blocks himself for the course! So at the beginning of the course you’ll get a lovingly prepared and highly polished block and you’ll learn the basics of cutting and printing blocks.
