Further Tales from Northumberland with Robson Green

December 18, 2019

 

 Here is a snippet of the time Robson Green came to Cherryburn to find out about Thomas Bewick and to try his hand at Wood engraving for himself. I can vouch for the fact that he didn't have any practice at all before he was filmed doing it for the first time. This proves wonderfully that it is a very accessible art form for anyone with an interest in trying it. I always have my wood engraving tools near at hand so if you are visiting my studio in Grizedale Forest, you can always try it for yourself too.
