Wood Engraving is a straightforward method of relief printmaking, whereby designs are drawn on to a hard wood such as boxwood. Areas of the design that are to remain white are then cut below the surface and the block is then rolled up with an oil-based printing ink, pressure applied and prints taken. Traditionally black ink is used, but it is possible to use coloured inks. Linocutting employs similar techniques, the end results are often bolder and more robust.
