Collagraphic Workshop - Dionne Swift

Yesterday I attended one of Dionne Swift's workshops - Collagraphic Printing. I did quite a bit of this during the last year of my degree, but I feel that attending workshops gives you new ideas and spurs you on to renew skills. Unfortunately I dont have a press at home - I would love one!

Had I been a beginner I would say that this workshop is perfect for both inexperienced and experienced. Dionne's teaching is clear, she gives you time to go through each process (of which there are many) and you progress through to take home some good and useable pieces for future projects, framing etc. This is a lengthy process and takes care and time, but very therapeutic!

Here is the link for her future workshops:-

She is presently renovated her new studio in Holmfirth, which looks like a fantastic space for her, so looking forward to visiting her there. 58 Huddersfield Road, Holmfirth, HD9 3AZ

Thank you Dionne x

Great Big Stitched Postcard Swap - BLOOM

I have received my lovely postcard from Linda Abbott from Alberta, Canada. Even the envelope was decorative which was great surprise when I opened the post box.

Thank you Linda.
