Basil and his 32kg suitcase then headed to Melbourne (after the Grampians adventure) and he ran a workshop at the Fire Station Printmaking Workshop in Armidale. Participants were given the opportunity to apply the chine collé colour technique to existing linocuts and etchings, or to carve and print a new woodblock print, using shina ply (from MES). At left is one of the beautiful hand-coloured sheets (already hand-printed on the reverse the day before) about to be adhered to a backing of Arches paper during the workshop.
And almost the next day…another workshop in Victoria
