If anyone is in the Stroud area around the 8th of March and beyond, you should go see this show, free entry and loads of examples of the different printmaking techniques out there.

There is more to prints than the inkjet  😉

Thanks for looking!

Sunday afternooning

DSCF2955
Screen Printing on Fabric, and mono printing using a small etching press
DSCF2960
Simple Screen printing using paper stencil to make a repeat pattern
DSCF2956
Used wiping, cotton buds, and plant material, and taking a second print so sometimes got a positive and negative, when using things like plant bits.

 

I was invited to attend a little gathering at the Print co operative I recently joined, to meet with some of the other new members. Tea ,chatting and a bit of print making, jolly good Sunday afternoon I think !

Final Print Images

These are the three final prints I put up in the  my degree show

( well versions of them, they vary slightly),

these are just printed cleanly without too much added.

 I shall upload images of the slightly different versions, and hopefully with links to my etsy shop where you can purchase your very own copy!  Soooon!

Here are some images,

The books

One of the shelves

 

as with a lot of book arts displays its quite an intimate thing, cosy one might say.

If you want a bit more info on Book arts and what they are exactly here is a good place to start..

Altered Books Project

Shakespeare meets ink in the text block Inked Page

Part of an ongoing project with the Artists book club that I am a member of , we are altering books then handing them back in for someone else to continue altering.

This was a copy of Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night , which I thought would look nice with ink liberally splattered, as I was applying it, it made some of these rather pleasing images  …
