Ex Libris: Design & Print a Book Plate
Leading Wood Engraver Chris Daunt will be running a wood engraving course over 6 evenings, which will result in you producing your very own book plate. Chris will take you through the tradition of book plates (also known as Ex Libris) and will then help you to design, cut and print your book plate as a wood engraving. No experience is required – suitable for complete beginners. You could make one for yourself or even as a Christmas gift for someone.
