One of the unexpected pleasures of the course was print making in our well equipped print studio. I returned to this for a module that had to be anything except ceramics.
I made screen prints from photographs; monoprints, etchings and dry point prints and then combined them, sometimes also cutting out parts of the prints to show coloured paper or foil behind; sometimes using thick acrylic paint for it’s three dimensional affect and strong colour. I added some screen prints made from prints of Leonardo da Vinci and added some crayon freehand to some of them. Except for the one from NASA of the striated surface of Mars, the original photographs were all my own. Some are of 1,000 year old floor boards in Japan, another of a paper model I saw in the Bauhaus in Weimar.
I had a wonderful time!
