I love October and this weekend has been glorious. I spent Sunday morning walking in the Autumn sunshine being inspired by all the natural colour.
I am drawn to the gorgeous reds and oranges in the hedgerows.
The berries are like jewels encrusting the branches and
dripping from surfaces.
The leaves are beginning to turn.
These ladybirds looked like walking berries. My Sunday was a relaxing time after a very energetic Saturday running a mono print workshop at Hampen Factory.
I had 6 talented people for a 1 day workshop where the creative possibilities of mono printing were thoroughly explored.
The first 4 images were made with a single pass through the press.

With the group becoming confident with this technique and lots of exciting images appearing

it was time to start working into them by inking up shapes and wall paper to over print the initial images.
With the backdrop of the Cotswold countryside around us at Hampen it was no surprise to see Autumn colour in the work. It was fantastic to work with such a talented group of people.

I love your photos and can almost smell that Autumn smell in the air! It sounds like you had a lot of fun giving your workshop... Sara x
