Luckily Babbara Womens’ Centre had a full sized print rack, which local muscle was able to move efficiently up to the Art Centre, next to their etching press for Basil’s September linocut workshop. Here is an edition of Belinda’s 3 colour prints (one more colour still to be added) and the nicely cut block which made them. Each lino block was adhered to a masonite backing board and given registration tags for ease of lining up the paper each time. The only (slight) problem was an energetic gecko (or cockroach) who decided to walk dirty little inky feet across the white margins of a few prints one night. This has happened to Basil before (at Munupi Arts in the mid-90s) and never seems to faze the artists as much as the printer.
Happiness is a full rack (this should get some hits)
