My print club produced some interesting work yesterday……..
The students used plastic for the top print and card for the bottom print.
This is an exciting medium and has endless possibilities!!
No class this morning so I did a Drypoint using card from a vacuum cleaner bag box.
Thursday May 26th or Saturday May 21st

Drypoint printmaking using card and plastic.
This is an all day workshop suitable for all abilities.
Full tuition given. Refreshments provided.
Please bring a packed lunch
Today I finished preparing my latest collagraph plate for printing.
Starting with a photo of Potterick Carr nature Reserve,
I stylised it into a design. I then found a collection of old collagraph boards and Drypoint card printing boards
I traced the main shapes from the design and cut pieces out from the old, used boards. The prints that will come off this will not bear much resemblance to this board because the colours are a bit distracting.
Print making club Thursday 10am – 12am
Doncaster DN2 6AL
After my textiles / printing class had gone home this lunch time and the afternoon ‘Home school’ class was cancelled I realised that I had some free time!
After printing a couple more drypoints I decided to create another collagraph block based on the Potterick Carr photo that I took a few weeks ago.
I first stylised areas of the photo because I wanted it to be a simplified version. I used old discarded card print blocks to start with and a little flowery collagraph block that I had made for a children’s workshop a while ago…
I will continue to find old collagraph and Drypoint boards to cut up for this…should be fun!
I need to produce a good body of work for my forthcoming exhibition at Sciccluna’s deli in Doncaster in June.
