Woodcuts are a prints made by sketching an image on to a block of wood, using gouges or carving tools to remove non printing areas of the block, allowing raised portions to be coated in ink using a hand roller. A sheet of paper is placed on top of the block and pressure is applied with a lithopress or etching press leaving an impression of the block’s raised areas in reverse. This printing technique transfers the wood grain on to the paper, preserving its beautiful natural pattern.
