Join WEN President, Joanne Price (Starpointe Studio), for a Wood Engraving workshop February 4 & 5, 10am – 5pm, in Bagdad, Kentucky!
Wood engraving creates delicate, fine details with bold woodcut characteristics. Wood engraving was historically used to creating images in news and leisure publications such as Harper’s Bazaar, Harper’s Weekly, the London Illustrated News and many more throughout the 1800 and early 1900s. It’s current artistic application is perfect for adding illustrations to letterpress holiday cards, artist’s books, broadsides or to create a stand-alone image. This intensive, engraving crash course will give participants the basic skills and resources to create a unique, wood-engraved print in a lovely rural setting. Participation includes an honored printmaking tradition – the print exchange! At the end of the workshop, students exchange prints – a perfect way to start your own art collection!

No prior experience required. Some patience and a desire for a hands on experience will make for a great workshop!
