I really enjoyed my day at Inkycuttlefish studio learning woodcut and its history. Great studio and nice music too! Lots of cups of coffee or tea. Mine is a tree I saw on the way along Blackhorse Lane, E17. It’s so easy to get to on the overground railway from my home.
Printmaking is easy when you don’t have a concept or you don’t have to worry about your drawing – you can just play with shapes and colour combinations which is basically what I do. I need to find another way of creating images and a way of connecting with a more personal approach.
There was some amazing work in the studio by various people and I realise that I have to look again at what I am doing with my prints and images – I need to start on something a bit more serious and researched than what I usually do.
Time to get on both with my prints and my bookbinding.
