On Sunday’s workshop Ali, Louise, Bernadette and Brenda joined me for my ‘Introduction to linocut printing’ workshop.
Brenda and Bernadette had some previous experience in linocut, where as Ali and Louise where complete beginners.
Here’s what they said....
What did you enjoy the most about the day?
"Everything - lovely staying, teaching, company, released atmosphere, trying something new and creative. Really supper teaching, thank you."
"Michelle’s help and support. Learning new techniques
and taking my prints home."
"Thanks Michelle for a great day. I’ve been looking forward to this for months. Not disappointed."
"The creative process - being helped to create my own unique image then. Plan and execute its completion."
"Achieving something that I thought would be too difficult and leaning how to carve area for later painting with watercolour... fantastic! "
Ali created a Lino print of eucalyptus flowers and nuts. She printed the design in sage green. The inks we used are Hawthorn oil based ink, so she was able to add pink and yellow watercolour highlights straight away.
