Here is her September Fields which so inspired me.
Ultimately my own final print was a tad disappointing, but I have wisdom with hindsight and a better understanding of the kind of design I would do.
I used my thistle design and had 2 plates one of Japanese ply and one of solid wood 10mm thick, so that I could try both.
We chiselled registration marks so that the prints would line up. And they were so accurate, even our first shot at chiselling correctly.
The design is outlined with a hangiko tool which is like a knife and you have to cut at an angle of about 60 degrees away from the outline around the design.
The other engraving tools in U-shapes or V-shapes are used to remove the excess wood of the negative spaces.
By the end of the first day most of us had broken the back of the carving and also learnt a great deal about woodcarving.
