If there is paper

The pages have been cut down, the boards covered and the books assembled.

 The lettering isn’t perfect but I’m quite pleased with them as a first attempt.

Pages printed

I had forgotten how much preparation goes into teaching a workshop, especially when it takes place in a school hall rather than a studio space. Most of last week was spent tearing paper, collecting materials and muttering to myself as I rehearsed and tried to refine what I was going to say. The meeting took place on Tuesday night and I think people enjoyed it; the group are mainly painters so this was something a bit different. I was so busy I didn’t have the chance to take photos of the work but everyone got at least one print made.

All of which meant not much happened to take my own work further, but I did get to HDP on Friday and managed to print the words on top of the monoprints I’d done last session....
 and to make a set of coloured monoprints with words (the colours are rather garish but I wanted contrast to explore the technique).
These pages will be cut down to make a small edition, hopefully in the next few days.
