Join artist Campbell Sandilands on this course which explores the possibilities of mark-making through the humble woodblock, in a relaxing, contemplative environment. Each week builds on the first session in week one, with carvings and rubbings from the block, printing in week two, and finally in week three, using the block as a finished work, using the technique of encaustic.
