Wood Engraving Lesson - Lewes Artwave

An evening Wood Engraving Lesson as part of my exhibition at the Hive in Lewes, during Artwave


I shall be running another of my popular 'An Introduction to Wood Engraving' lessons on Thursday 3rd of September 2015 6pm to 9pm

Whether you want a deeper insite to wood engraving or you think this medium is for you, come along to an introduction to the basics of wood engraving. You will be using a variety of tools and exploring the variety of marks the tools are able to make. We will look at the process and methods of interpreting designs that are needed to produce finished work- Hopefully depending on time and results we will touch on the basics of printing the blocks too. Everyone will take home their efforts. During the lesson we will also look at the history and development of this most quintessentially English of art mediums.

The lesson will be at The Hive 66 High St, Lewes, East Sussex BN7 1XG.

The cost of these workshops is £45.00- which includes the cost of the block- which you get to take away.  To book the lesson click HERE


Here are some lovely comments I've had from students of previous classes:


Many thanks for an excellent class last night - I learned a lot -felt the balance between practicing and your input was spot on - good sense of humour and encouragement too - even tea and biscuits !!!
Was so inspired have bought tools today.

Many thanks -


Just a quick note to say thank you for the educational (and challenging) evening yesterday.

I really enjoyed it, and will definitely look to carry on with some more engravings,


I just wanted to say a huge THANK YOU for the course yesterday evening.

It was absolutely enthralling and I can’t wait to take a trip down to Lawrence’s, invest in a few tools and start practising

thanks again Keith – it was a great course and very lovely to meet you.
