Relief Printing Workshop 6th July - snapshots

Saturday 6th July was a very busy and productive day in our Ramsgate print studio for the Relief Printing workshopThank you to everyone who participated and made this workshop such an enjoyable and successful experience. We worked on developing ideas with image and text on wood and lino in b/w and colour. The group also explored reduction printing techniques and combining mixed media processes by using multi-block printing and collage. We plan to have a follow-up workshop very soon!
