printmaking workshop

Posted by carlotta on Tuesday June 19th, 2012 at 10:37am

I spent an inspiring day on Saturday photographing a printing workshop at my daughter’s school. The day was brilliantly organised around introducing four printing techniques to children ranging in age from 5 to 11. The resulting prints will be used to decorate the newly painted dining hall. I don’t think I have ever seen a room full of children and parents concentrate so hard for such a long time, thoroughly enjoying the messy, fascinating, colourful techniques. The subject-matter was, not surprisingly, food, so there are now beautiful prints of fruit and vegetables ready to hang on the walls. I stayed behind the camera and loved working on capturing people completely absorbed in what they were doing. I was also lucky with the lighting, for although there was not a lot of it, the large wall of windows created lovely shadows and highlights. I can only post photos here which do not identify the children, so I can’t share the lovely pictures I got of the children’s faces as they worked.¬†Hopefully these will still give a sense of the wonderful day everyone had.
