I thoroughly enjoyed sharing some great texture techniques I'd learned last year from Gary Reef ... being a 'Mini' workshop with only around 5 hours it meant we had to get through the 4 techniques pretty quickly ... I'm happy to say all my 'students' (haha that gives me such a buzz) did a great job! Some WIPS were taken home to be completed at a later stage and from the positive feedback I'm receiving ... I am sure you will be able to incorporate them into your future artwork!

As you can see we had lots of FUN ... especially with the Hippy Hat! lol

Thanks so much to our tutor Jenelle Wood for getting us all hooked on printing LOL! :-D Jenelle was excellent at showing us the finer points of printmaking using etching (scratching into the plate) and collographs (glueing string, textured papers, sand, sticky tapes etc. onto the plate)
LOTS OF FUN was had by all!
