Join Joanne Price (Starpointe Studio) and assistant Chad Pastotnik (Deep Wood Press) for a Wood Engraving workshop in the south of France October 6-9. Learn the art of wood engraving or simply engrave & study in the 16th century Hotel Jean de Brion / Louis Jou Foundation on a spur of rock in the beautiful countryside of Les Baux-de-Provence.
Wood engraving is the perfect at-home print process – It’s portable, meditative, and a printing press is not necessary. Learn to cut a design into end-grain wood blocks through demonstration and hands-on practice. Instruction covers material basics, creating and transferring images, tool sharpening, engraving, DIY printing, plus pro tips and tricks. Monday October 9 is an optional studio/ study day. Most materials are included in the tuition cost of $327.
The course will be taught in English, with both English and French terms/ instructions provided on paper. English and French speakers are welcome!
