We explored sun printing using Dala Sun Colour Paints, gelatine monoprinting and stencil printing with an etching press.
We had heaps of fun with some great results and near misses. I always enjoy running workshops with art groups, there's a great vibe and lots of light hearted laughter and jokes. It really makes tutoring less of a 'job' !
