Japanese Woodblock Etching Tools for Printmaking

If you’ve ever been a student at the Cambridge Center, you might know Selma Bromberg, our long-time printmaking teacher, who has been working with burgeoning artists for nearly 40 years.

Within minutes she had stretched out work and materials from her classes across the tables to share with me.
