We welcome all wood engravers!
Our members are primarily from North America, but we welcome and value our diverse international members too! No wood engraving experience is required - we welcome all levels of experience, from the merely interested to the collector to the historian to the professional. We want to bring energy to a printmaking medium that has been cast aside by industry and embraced by artists. We are interested in the history, the education and the practice of this absorbing medium - and we love to share with others!
We encourage member participation, but it is not obligatory. Members (and non-members) contribute articles, events, news and announcements for our biannual journal called the Block & Burin. As part of the twice-yearly journal, WEN organizes an optional exchange of original prints and related materials. These two items together have been dubbed a “Bundle”. Our mailings are twice a year; roughly in May and November.
Membership provides opportunities for exhibition, print exchanges and bundle participation, as well as easy and centralized access to resources specifically for wood engravers.
