Always Learning: Wood Engraving Classes!

For my birthday a few weeks ago, Brad gave me unlimited wood engraving lessons with Carl Montford!

Carl is absolutely a master of his craft, and I am honored to call him a friend. He was the "matchmaker" who brought us together with the seller of our first press, and he even helped us move the press into our studio (not an easy task). Carl is an absolute treasure of the letterpress community, and I am so excited to be learning from him!

The photo above is the progress of my first engraving project. I'm working on an anchor image and using a Resingrave block. I learned so much in just the first three hours. It's so exciting to be learning a new skill from such an amazing artist. Cherish is taking classes as well, so I'll see if I can get her to share her progress too. I'll keep you posted as we progress!
