Print your own woodcut Christmas cards
Sunday 12 November 2017
Using the Museum as inspiration, learn to design an image and transfer it onto a woodblock, using wood cutting tools to carve the image, and practice mark making techniques. You will then print your own woodblock to produce ten Christmas cards. Afterwards you can take your woodblock away with you so that you can print more at home.
