Level 4 Experimental Research for Design – Garnets – Session 2

Last week a group of 9 students travelled to the studio to continue their quest for designs that worked towards their chosen theme. They spent a great deal of time designing on paper before they cut a rubber block.  By the time they got to the printing stage, it went very quickly.  They also used the press for Collagraphy.  Penny and I spent time discussing, brainstorming and analyzing design features with the group.  It is hard to describe the amount of positive energy and excitement that is created by a body of like minded people working in a group. We’ll do it all over again in Session 3 in April.   Gail

    It was a joy to work with this group and their amazing designs taken into print! Each student was able to print her design using several different ink colors on hand painted papers. It was quite amazing to see how each design could look in different color ways–pale ink on dark paper, dark ink on pale paper, neutral inks on white or grey paper, pastel ink on pastel paper, green ink on vibrant red paper. A feast for the eyes and imagination!
