I’ve enrolled on the OCA’s Printmaking 1 course. Woo hoo! I’ve got my course materials through the post, and I’m dead excited. I love the way the OCA mark their course materials as “Urgent Educational Material” – Mr P and I were ill in bed yesterday, and we missed the postman the first time round. But he came back a second time – because the parcel was for urgent educational purposes? – and Mr P heard him that time. Heh. It’s true though, it was urgent. I was jonesing to get my hands on it.
And I was not disappointed! The course covers monoprints, relief prints (linocutting mainly) and collatype prints. And combining all these together. I may get anarchic and throw some stitches in – who knows!
Anyway, dead excited to get started – the first module is on monoprints. I’ve just put in a big order at Great Art for some inks, a big roller (my current one is tiny) and some paper. Inky hands, here we come.
