they truly love to do, we have decided to lower the prices on most of our
workshops this fall. A new workshop list is attached, along with a list
below in text form. If you do not receive the attachment, please write to me
offlist and I will be happy to send you another one. Or send your snail mail
address to be put on our snail mail list.

Please note that many of these workshops are filling up very fast, so call

Wood Engraving Workshop with Siri Beckman (Weekend Workshop)
Join Siri Beckman from Stonington, Maine, in learning the skill of wood
engraving, a relief printing technique with a history dating back to the
1700s. Similar to wood cut, wood engraving has a potential for fine detail
and was used extensively for book, newspaper and magazine illustration. Its
novel advantage is that the blocks can be combined with hand set type.
    Participants will design, cut and print a wood block in a small edition.
Drawing experience and manual dexterity are required. Certain materials and
tools will also be necesssary, although some can be provided. Please call
for more details.
Fee: $125, limit 5

Private instruction and shop rental are available most evenings. Please call

2 weeks before the workshop.

*Materials costs will vary depending on the project. Workshop fees

Study are also available. Call or write for details.
