Printmaking

My blog has been very badly looked after – too many things happening and not much of it creative!  I went to our local college to learn how to print – 10 weeks starting in April. It was a disaster – a tutor who taught us very little and was missing both a sense of humour and skill transfer abilities. A dreadful waste of money and exceedingly frustrating – shame the college has all the equipment.

So last week, I spent two days with Maxine – http://www.maxinefoster.com/www.maxinefoster.com/Home.html. She has a studio in her home. She listened to want I wanted to do and worked with me so that I understood the processes I need and bingo, I have had a great day getting it right today.

Used my own hand made templates – card and pva glue. And just played.

I now have lots to think about to get better compositions and have more control over the layering procesß to get both the colours and effects I want – no small task.

I hope you are stitching!
