An Ambitious Week of Printmaking

Screenprint 005 Every class of the Unicorn School came to visit Orleans House a couple of weeks ago, and we decided to give each class a different experience of printmaking, in response to the Stables Gallery exhibition by Richmond Printmakers. It was an ambitious task, screenprinting with 22 seven and eight year olds in 90 minutes, but they did an amazing job!

Collograph 012

... And finally I was able to share my newfound passion for collography with a class of Year 5s. Once again, time was tight, but we all learnt a lot and they produced some stunning pieces. I particularly liked this one, and I hope the artist prints it again, as we found that one or two of the plates had begun to dry out by the time they reached the printing press.
