Voices from the Engraver

June 5, 2018 @ 10:00 am - August 30, 2018 @ 5:00 pm

Engraving tools laid on a dark brown background. A black and gold pen or chisel tool is on the right, a rolling wooden mallet tool is in the centre, a white paper with a sketch of a man's face is on the far left.

Opening reception: Friday, June 22, 6:30 PM

Experience the creative process, the technical skill and the sheer artistry that underlies every series of Canadian stamps and bank notes from concept to final product. Reproductions of original art, printing plates, tools, rare stamps, and money are waiting for you in this fun, informative and enriching look into the beauty and intricacy of Canadian stamps and bank notes.

Aimed at youth, families and adults, participate in hands-on interactives, re-produce the beautifully elaborate patterns of classic bank notes and browse through a millennium’s worth of engravers and engraving history.

Light blue text logo reads Bank of Canada Museum in wrap text. Adjacent to the text is a line art graphic with two triangles crossing over each other, one purple and one light blue. Black text logo reads Canadian Museums of History, Musee Canadien de l'histoire.
