Week 7, Day 19: Wednesday 27 June

I did a lot of printing this week which felt good. On Thursday I had my first day in Blackstack Print workshop.  It’s a brilliant workshop, getting off to a great start. I’d a bit of hassle moving all my printing materials down there (steel plates are heavy!) but once I was set up it was well worth it! I mostly experimented with printing different colours and layers to get ideas for the next plates to make. Below are some of the trial proofs I made.

Day 19, Wed 27 June: Etched steel plate

Monoprint, etching and relief (hand written elements)

Day 20, 28th June: Trial proofs

Collograph and relief: An older print from a couple of weeks back that I think I will re-work.
