This weekend I’m running another weekend workshop in Canberra for three locals and one Sydney visitor. We’re once again doing our popular coloured woodblock two-dayer; one that I’ve offered in communities up north, and, more recently, in Melbourne, Sydney, Armidale and Albury. Blocks have to be drawn, cut and hand-printed onto chine colle paper on Day 1, allowing them time to dry overnight (water-based inks) so they can be pre-glued and coloured with powder pigment on the second day. The coloured chine colle sheets are them adhered to a Magnani backing paper and dried under boards. Here, Sue Hays is expertly clearing out an area of her block of Shina ply in readiness for the first proof.
