I have been producing new collagraph prints exploring the still life as an image. I am working towards watercolours and prints that look at the interior looking out to the wider world. This is one of my first prints. Just using two colours, ultamarine and burnt sienna with black.
The picture shows my table with 12 to 14 light fittings all displayed together, all glowing.

Collagraph is a method of printmaking using a cardboard plate on which you scratch, cut, stick, layer or draw. It is a simple way of printing which requires no particular drawing skills, exciting and creative results can be produced by cutting and layering papers and making marks.
Once the plate is made it is rolled with inks and printed in black and white or bright colours producing textured, colourful images.
Some beautiful and inspiring work will be on show, I have had a peep at Janine's latest wallhangings/stoles.
Janine, Karen or myself will be there on Saturdays and Wednesdays. Here is the poster with the dates.
