Magic of Monoprinting at TAA

I've spent the past 3 days at the bi-annual Textile & Art Academy, a residential art event held at St Peters School, Indooroopilly.

I ran a 2 day monoprinting workshop, a busy couple of days where everyone had fun producing some wonderful prints. 

Some photos from the workshop are below.

Inked plates ready for printing

For once Thumper (my press) stayed at home and
we used the school press.  Note the condition of
the blanket - it wasn't us!!!

Printing in progress, plenty of enthusiasm and creativity

prints stacked up in the drying rack.
A colourful sandwich!

Joy's lovely prints including her fungi series

Fay's vibrant prints,
perhaps a book in the making

and colour

at the end of Day 2

Mum and I also enjoyed a market day today in the main hall.  We had a table selling our art wares, but I must admit I spent lots of money on the other stalls, as well as on hot drinks.  I sold out of gelli-arts plates and made many new contacts and renewed a few from workshops past.  Lucky we were inside so the rain didn't matter.  A lovely relaxing day talking to everyone.
