White line printing with Sandy Webster

March 31, 2019 at 7:16 pm 1 comment


Sandy Webster is an accomplished artist from the US who was kind enough to fit in our workshop before returning home. Day One was cutting the first woodblock and printing, first print on the right, lots of mistakes to learn from! I will experiment a little more with this block- have added some dremel holes and will change up the colours, print individual ones as well.

Day two, a little better on the printing skills, not totally happy with the carving from the original sketch-the original was more floaty and this looks rather heavy but the tools I had were not small enough for really fine detail. I will also experiment a little more with this- try with a turquoise background.

Thank you Sandy for a very intensive learning experience, practice makes perfect as demonstrated by some of the more experienced printmakers in the group. And thank you to Kerrie at Studio@54, you always have wonderful hospitality and workshops.

    Very interesting post. I’ll be looking forward to more of these printings. As we enter into full on Spring here, I imagine you’re heading into the Autumnal time.
