As part of the Printmakers Forum programme we held a very successful group print day on Sunday January 6th for any of our full members who wanted to take part.

Drawing the collection of shoes

On the day nine people turned up with a fine and rarefied collection of shoes to draw and make into a print.

Taking part:

Printing blocks had to be complete by lunch time to allow time to print up a copy of the print for everyone, one for the studio and one for the archives.

Linocuts, collagraphs and monotypes were produced enhanced by small areas of chine colle. After a couple of proofs a streamlined production process was developed orchestrated by Sarah Hopkins and the thirteenth print came off the press around 7.00pm. The print was shown in our exhibition at the Arts Wing at the Grand Theatre, Swansea in February 2008.
