A series of colour etchings from Jim Flook

Architect Jim Flook attended the July workshop on Skopelos and set himself the task of making 9 etching plates based on the local architecture. As all the plates were the same dimensions, Jim was then able to combine the images in an almost endless number of permutations. Here are the first 6 variations, printed by...

Another print from the Skopelos workshops, 2011

Mieke Cohen made this beautiful drypoint and aquatint during the July workshops on Skopelos.

A Return to Skopelos

We’ve been in some pretty grubby clean up rooms, but this balcony at the Skopelos Foundation in Greece makes a picturesque spot to work on your plate. Trisch Wilson-Adams only has eyes for her plate, though! The first of two groups for 2011 is just into its second week of etching and relief printing. Thirteen...
