Bob Porter Engraving Workshop

Resident master engraver of the Bluecoat, Bob Porter, expertly demonstrated a range of engraving techniques suitable for print making on Saturday the 18th September.

Inspired by Bob's collection of books illustrating Durer prints plus his own impressive engraved samples, students were able to study techniques and experiment with basic methods.
