Monoprinting in the studio in the garden

Much of Frome is solid rows of 3 storied stone houses with front doors of different colours. Des and Stina's front door is blue. Up some steep stone stairs behind the house is a wonderful garden full of old English plants and vegetables. Stina's studio is in a seperate house in the garden.

Stina specialises in printmaking and she has a printing press in her studio, which she uses both for her own work and to take printing workshops. She showed me some of the many monoprint possibilities yesterday before disappearing off to London for a couple of days, so I am about to try this technique. If any of my products is worth showing, I will post them on my blog. Don’t hold your breath though. I suspect it is not nearly as easy as she makes it seem.
