Art in the Park, Outdoor Studio, Printing

A morning introducing printing as a way of recording and exploring the natural world of the copse.
Sun prints showed fascinating silhouettes and roller printing exposed the intricate patterns and edges of leaves and feathers. To capture the textures of immovable objects such as tree trunks we took a lump of clay (recycled from Florian’s casting workshop) for a walk  pressing this into surfaces to make an impression and then  using it as printing block.

This same clay  was reused in the afternoon session, modelled into woodland creatures with the materials of the woodland floor forming spines, feathers, fur and scales.
