Today my daughter and I taught two gorgeous girls some printmaking in the lighthouse studio. They were such fast learners - so the time went in a whirlwind. They did self portraits which were then made into negatives and exposed onto solar plate to make a relief matrix. They were printed with black oil based ink and then hand coloured with water based inks. The girls (ages 9 and nearly 7) also screen printed background colours onto calico and over printed with photostencil designs - then their favourite bits were selected to make a cushion patch. (Plain cushions super cheap at KMart!) We did the session as a skills swap with their mum - so now we have some massages from her to look forward to - love this system. Let me know if you want to do a skills swap session!
