Studio Workshop

The studio enjoyed a day of Creative madness on Friday with the fabulous artist Nicki Dennett at Debbie Bryans Workshop in Nottingham. We experimented with mono-printing and collagraphy to explore different print making results. Below is an example of everything that went on including some of the results. We shall have more of the collagraphy outcomes when they are all dry so we can show you some amazingly brilliant designs!
