So last week Sam, Zoe and I explored how to make an etching by scratching into perspex sheet.
This required hard work and commitment, and Zoe and Sam stuck to it right through to the end including inking up and putting their work through the press by turning the great handle on the side. The results were great - I love the magic of printmaking; when the paper emerges out of the press and you turn it over you never quite know what you are going to get. Neither Zoe or Sam had done etching before and both really loved it. Now they know that they could use that skill again if an idea came to mind. (Lou Brett)
