What a busy week I have had, the yard:ARTspace hosted a very successful
Silk Aquatint workshop over the weekend.
Silk Aquatint I hear you cry...well it is a fabulous
collagraph technique that with the addition of
viscosity inking produces rich, moody, tonal images.
2 days of plate making and
experimenting with different ways of inking produced
lots of interesting prints.
If you can get hold of this book, it is the Silk Aquatint bible as far as I am concerned.
Fun and hard work in equal measure, I am always surprised
how hard everyone works on a weekend workshop.
Last week also saw the arrival on March's 'Print a Month'
4 hours printmaking in the studio and this was produced.
Not quite finished yet, there is a surprise element planned to fit in with my sewing/making birds theme...???
I love working in the yard:ARTspace. If you want to join in the fun check out the workshops and courses on www.theyardartspace.com, but be warned, printmaking can prove to be habit forming!
