Come and see my etchings ...

Soft ground etching and aquatint.

Yet another brilliant course at the Regional Print Centre, Wrexham, this time
Etching with Jason Hicklin (visit Jason's work here

These are my first plates, having never tried it before
and having been completely baffled by the whole process in the past.

Hard ground etching with aquatint.

Lovely mark making effects!

Now I can actually say (like I've always wanted to)..
"would you like to come and see my etching?"

Screen Printing with Emma Gregory at Wrexham Print Centre

Four lucky novice print-makers had an intensive 2 day course in Screen Printing with Emma Gregory. A really brilliant experience... we all feel fired and confident to go into the studio alone and create very nice prints. Technique, good habits, layering, design, ink mixing, printing and playing with the prints were covered in a totally hands on way, which really worked. Practice is very important when starting out.

Visit Emma's website at for info on courses and her work.

Here are a few of prints of mine from the 2 days, although I have an entire folder to choose from!
