Wood Engravings

Wood Engraving is a relief printmaking medium practised on a wood block (end-grain) that can produce a plethora of fine lines and textured tones that are exquisite and expressive. Engraving tools have extraordinary names: scorper, spitsticker, tint tool and graver.  The end-grain wood block is a beautiful and organic material on which to work.

 

Kate is an elected member of The Society of Wood Engravers (SWE) and contributes to the Society’s journal Multiples. Also, she is an elected Fellow to The Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers (RE). She has served on the committees for both societies.
