I’ve just completed a short relief print class at Australian Print Workshop on Gertrude street in Fitzroy, running every Tuesday evening over the last four weeks.
It was a really fun little workshop, giving me the opportunity to make Vinyl, Linocut and Woodblock prints using the various printing presses they have on site.
These are a few pics from the first print I made using a vinyl block to create a single colour image. Printed using their beautiful Columbian printing press. (Below)
I need to wait until next week, when the ink on the rest of my prints will be dry before I can go pick them up – And post up pics of course… So can’t wait!
Tui in Wgtn Wind - Edition of 3 onto Stonehenge 245gsm Printmaking paper 255 x 278mm. I have decided to sell one print only – Check it out on Felt.
UPDATE : So I managed to press another two of this print the following week – This time on a handmade flax paper I’ve been hoarding since my mother sent me over a stack for my birthday. I love seeing the Tui on a handmade paper derived from the plant its perched on in the print. Also how the paper colour works with the black ink.
