Preparing for print

 

Today was the third session of the Pembrey Primary school print project at Llanelly House.

Alan Williams from Swansea Print Workshop is leading the project working in partnership with Pip Lewis from spacetocreate community arts.

First of all we looked at all our drawings and chose one of them to develop for our print.

We chose card with textured wallpaper to make a printing block.

We then cut it up to make our design and glued it on to card ready for printing next week. We also had a look at the blog so that we could remember and reflect on what we have done so far.

Here are some of us with our finished printing blocks all ready for printing.

… and here are all of the printing blocks…

The next session will be the last one and we will be working with our designs to make a Collagraph – ‘a collage printmaking technique, where the image is composed from a variety of textured materials glued to a cardboard or metal base’.
