During this two-day workshop you will combine letterpress and engraving to create your own set of limited edition prints. During Day One you will design and transfer your image onto the woodblock and learn how to engrave using a variety of tools. Ben will then show you how to print your engraving by hand and using a press. On Day Two you will compose a page of letterpress type and print it with your engraving in situ. By the end of the course you will have an edition of prints featuring your own engraving and type.

The course tutor, Ben Goodman, is an artist and skilled letterpress printer who works in the relief print area at Bower Ashton and at Bristol Bound Bookbinding. He is a Member of the Society of Wood Engravers. This course will be held at UWE Bristol’s Bower Ashton Studios with a maximum of 6 participants.
