Reduction Cut Workshop - the results!

What an amazing weekend of printing we've had here at 'Nest'!

Guided by the very talented Eva Rasmussen, we delved into the world of Reduction Cut Printing. The two-day workshop covered everything from getting our design onto the plate, when and how to cut each colour, preparing the ink and transferring the inked-up plate onto the paper.

Adding each colour was always nerve-wracking, but SO interesting to see the various effects we created ... even if they were accidental at times!

Each student had such varying styles, that it was very interesting to see what everyone produced by the end of the weekend.

It was lovely to have the gallery full of such wonderful, creative people. The weather was also very kind to us, warming up nicely throughout the day! (even if we did have frosty toes in the morning).
