Printing Frenzy.

Teachers from Manchester Catholic secondary and sixth form colleges came together at Loreto sixth form college in Hulme to explore the world of print. Exploring the theme of landscape and pattern, and working alongside artist Helen Hallows, teachers expressed themselves freely through the technique of collograph, relief and drypoint. Using wallpapers. water based inks and metallic card a vast amount f prints were produced, in one instance 25 prints were produced. Some teachers were seen leaving the day with inky hands, but they have half term to wash it off. I suspect more prints were produced than on any other day. Thanks to Joan Gatley fror organising the day!
