Engraving Workshop

Last week-end I took a workshop at the Tides Institute in wood engraving. I have always wanted to learn about it, so I signed up as soon as I heard about it. The instructor was somebody whose work I have always admired, Siri Beckman. She is well-known in her field and has been published in books about wood engraving, as well as illustrating several books. This is a picture of my little 3x4 block on the press bed waiting to be printed, then the finished product. I really enjoyed doing it and immediately went on line to order some supplies so I can keep on with it.
