Printmaking Workshop with Jenelle Wood!

BAVA girls and Terry had a great day today doing some wonderful collograph prints and etchings! 

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!
