Snapshots of last weekend …
It started with a fun Introduction to Drypoint workshop in the barn with a couple of enthusiastic printmakers. Drypoint printing is an intaglio process, similar to etching, and is a fantastic way to make quick prints. We use our renovated mangle in place of an etching press – it’s a little hard going, but the prints always come out brilliantly.
After lunch there was just time for a coffee and chat with Lisa Temple-Cox and David Watkins from ENAS who are exploring creative connections in Essex.
On Sunday I packed my scruffiest clothes and headed into London for the Holi Festival, which involves bursts of colour being flung around in complete abandon and basically covering e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g in paint – excellent fun!
