This is the perfect opportunity to print some Christmas gifts!
In this workshop you will be provided with one end-grain boxwood and a tool to create your marks with on the wood block. The first stage of the workshop is to choose a design from Nicole's collection of art books, or create your own pattern / image. The next step will be to simply dent or score the block with your tool.
Once your design is ready, you will then ink up your block using Caligo inks and print onto Japanese papers. In the workshop you will learn how to print without a press.
You will each be given a note book to print onto as a gift from me!
* This workshop is an extra £5 due to the price of the wood
* I will have my bargain box where you can buy two items to print onto for £5
Your welcome to bring your own images along to the workshop, however the block is very small so bare this in mind. See below a few images to give you an idea.
Think about what you might want to print onto, if you have any interesting papers at home bring it along to the workshop and try it out!
Wear comfortable clothing and dress for mess. An apron will be provided for you.
Before you go home please make sure you tidy up your space and clean any equipment you used, thank you :)
