In this workshop you will make a ‘blind embossed print’. Embossing can be used to make a raised image on the paper, rather like a low level relief. It can be combined with other techniques, however, the main delight is the pure white, blind embossed, tactile image which results from cutting the image into a medium such as lino and using the printing press.  When illuminated with a side light, or ‘raking light’ it can be particularly beautiful.
