Not a lot to report today as we have spent the whole day learning how to do wood engraving by a lady who has exhibited at the Royal Academy. Lucky people!
We spent the first half an hour being shown the wood and tools and the basics, then got given this –
Just a small test piece to learn how to use the tools. My first masterpiece!
Then we got some more instruction and a bigger bit of wood. This time it took three hours to get to this –
My final print –
I don’t suppose the RA will be calling but I am happy that in just one day I have made and printed my own wood engraving!
That leaves tomorrow to get all the chores done. Have a smashing Sunday!
