Totley Printing Report

To celebrate the completion of their investigation into the world of print. year 3 pupils from Totley Primary School in Sheffield  spent a day working with printmaker Alan Birch. Pupils, teachers and artists braved the snowy weather to complete their work.The pupils had already researched the work of Guttenberg, Berwick amongst others and created relief prints and drypoint prints during the day. Using the theme of patterns in nature and Mehndi designs, the 30 pupils worked tirelessly throughout the day, producing preliminary drawings, plates and prints. Parents were invited into school to see the copious amounts of work produced. A printing treat prior to half term!

I’d like to thank you again for a superb day of printing enrichment for our lucky Y3 children. Right from the word go you really inspired them to develop their ideas and showed them how the different processes worked, step by step. This enabled them to produce work of incredible quality, which they were evidently very proud of.
I have done a report about our day for the school website, as I said I would, and have uploaded lots of photos. When the work itself has been mounted and displayed, I will take some more photos and send you a few. The link to the report is here:
