Printmaking 2 (Collagraphy)

Week 6 at Art School - p.1

Printmaking workshop today was really satisfying. I loved the process of inking up and printing (despite the white spirit fumes - prefer water based inks myself!) ... could really get into this :)


Watch a slide show of the process here (mouse over each picture for a short description):

Thanks to Laura for taking the photos of me (yes I know, cheesy grins) and Dervin for the link to the slide maker.

Art and design history lecture today was "The Impact of Modernism - Cubism". Rather than speaking at us, Georgina showed us an episode from an old (1980) BBC documentary called "The Shock of the New" (the episode was the "Mechanical Paradise" one). There's a book based on the series too - must try and get hold of a copy to read ...

Mithi, I love these prints! They've come out really well. It's difficult getting the right amount of ink (not to much or too little). I know what you mean about the fumes, too.

Ooooh you lucky girl, getting to use a real press instead of the back of a spoon or a wooden rolling pin like I did. I love your prints--they're fabulous. The four white on black drawings are really cool too. You have such a good sense of design and composition!
