Wood Engraving

A wood engraving is carved into the end grain of a hard wood such as box wood or cherry wood. As wood engravings are created from the end grain of the wood, they tend to be quite small images. Wood engravings are created with a variety of specialist engraving tools which can create beautiful, varied marks. Traditionally wood engravings have been produced in black or monochrome to show off the range of mark making in the image.

All images shown here have been produced at the workshop.
