Wyards Print and Art Works Ltd.

I did a day-long course in wood engraving with Anne Desmet at Wyards Print and Art Works in Faversham, Kent on 18 August 2007 – a high speed introduction to the world of end-grain woodblocks (boxwood, lemonwood and pear), specialist engraving tools (lozenge graver, spitsticker, scorper, tint and multiple tools), leather sandbag, japanese papers (gampi and kozu-shi), hand-burnishing with a teaspoon etc. Enthused by the course, I am reading a biography of Thomas Bewick and went to Oxford to look at some wood engravings by Clare Leighton (1901-1989) and Gwen Raverat (1885 – 1957) in the Ashmolean Museum Print Room.
