Iris Priest

Over the past few weeks Iris Priest has been in the workshop. You may remember the ticket that she designed for our 5th Birthday Prize Draw. For helping us fund raise we have repaid her with some shop time to collaborate with us on some lithos.

We have been working hard and a currently under way with a second round of proofing (see below for a wee sneak peek of first image - 9 runs, 14 colours), while Iris draws a new stone.

Keystone Editions - Berlin

Just returned from a wonderful week in Berlin visiting with Tamarind Master Printers Sarah Dudley & Uli Kühle at their lithography workshop Keystone Editions. It was good to get my hands dirty helping Uli install the electric motor on to one of their presses and assist Sarah at the press for one of the runs of a project. They were kind enough to let me draw on one of their stones.
