Today I did a little homework for the workshop I’ll be teaching at Baldessin Press. I love teaching there because it is such a beautiful place with beautiful people.
This time I’ll be teaching some printmaking techniques using wax, encaustic collagraphs and wax monotypes. I’ll be there on the 5th and 6th of April. I’m pretty sure there are vacancies, but there’s only enough room for a maximum of eight people, so if you’re interested it’s probably best to book soon. Bookings can be made through their website.
We spent today at Atelier Meridian, printing the plates we made yesterday at Elise Wagners studio. tomorrow will also be spent printing.
Those bad women Elise and Jane had bought us some voodoo donuts for breakfast. Words fail me!
Let this photograph speak instead:
The Atelier is a large space, with three beautiful etching presses, including a big Takach, and a letterpress. There is also a Lino press. Full membership of the atelier is $125 a month, and gives you unlimited access 24/7!
I will show you more of my results tomorrow, but here is a print from one of my plates.
We finished the afternoon with a glass of wine and some cheese and crackers. Very civilised!
Barbara Mason, Elise Wagner and Jane Pagliarulo.
