Member's Printing day with Jude Lovatt

Today was our first member's workshop of 2015. It proved to be a very popular workshop. Lots of members wanted an opportunity to have a playday printing. Jude, one of our members kindly led the workshop. Jude is a very talented artist and teacher and she took us through lots of different processes including stamping, monoprinting, Gelli plates, thermofaxes and many others. Some members had done very little printing and got lots of help and support from Jude and others used the day to experiment and create. Have  a  look at some of the work we did.
This was a very packed room today and we soon started getting the creative juices going
