I attended a workshop at Dilworth last weekend, the teacher was Kathy Boyle and the organiser was Susan Hurrell-Fieldes and it was about the painterly print. The weather was atrocious, like someone emptied the bath, so we were pleased to be inside and out of it, or so we thought. Day one we worked building up multiple images on canvas with a view to making a small book on day two. Day two was etching aluminium using various resists, collaging and preparing material to bind for the book. I was slow and have only just finished my cover. It is canvas and has been bound on the edges with a strong paper. The spine is made out of a different piece of canvas and sewn together, I intend long stitching the pages in which I will have the collection of prints I produced over the two days. I really struggled to be loose with the construction and I intend working towards a more relaxed structure next.
