This one-day workshop is specially designed as a taster/teaser – short & sweet, like summer’s kiss! It’s dark, it’s devilishly detailed – you’ll be charmed by its history, its delicate, but bold, woodcut characteristics, and its intimate scale. Walk away with the know-how to make illustrations the “old” way—black & white images hand-cut into end grain wood—perfect for adding illustrations to letterpress cards, artist’s books, broadsides, or for creating stand-alone images. The contemporary applications of this antiquated process are endless. The class will be held at the Western New York Book Arts Center (WYNBAC) amidst downtown Buffalo’s vibrant renewal, held the day after BookFest, Saturday July 7th, 10am–4:30pm. I honestly don’t know the last time wood engraving was taught in Buffalo – after Frank Eckmair‘s (Buffalo State College Professor Emeritus) influence — maybe in 1995? Join Joanne Price, WEN President and owner/operator of Starpointe Studio, in reinstating a vibrant graphic tradition in the second (only to NYC) most influential “gateway” city! Rust Belt cities unite: Come join the fun, residents of Pittsburg, Cleveland, and Rochester — hope to see you there!
