Bobby Britnell Day 2

The second day of Bobby's workshop continued from where we left off on Day 1.  Our first exercise was monoprinting both on fabric and on paper.

Printing on calico (sorry I haven't been able to get a good photo of this)

Sketchbook pages - sorry about the quality of the photos.

Altering the surface - using graphite powder to highlight the marks

Paper put through crimpers

Shibori style

Hot iron on fax paper

I wiped up all the black and white acrylic paint from my monprinting onto this brown paper - photo on left of page.  I cut it up into 3" squares

Bobby suggested I thought about placement - distance between the squares

Bobby gave us so much information and so many ideas.  She generously shared her sketchbooks with us and talked about the quilts hanging in the exhibition at the Minerva Gallery.

We all had a fabulous time.

Thanks for stopping by.
