Photos relate to examples that Dior brought in for the Lyrical theme for the Hazelhurst Exhibition in 2015.
Dior showed us a couple of examples of prints she made using a 12 inch record. Basically, we agreed that the format size of the paper we print on should be the record cover size to keep the uniformity for the group work. The material that the record is made i.e. cardboard cover, plastic/paper sleeve can be used to create any art work i.e. relief, intaglio and/or collage. Even breaking the record into pieces and printing the pieces.
The records she used were not valuable, less than $2 from op shop. NB vinyl is popular again, some popular original titles are very rare and expensive – no need to use your precious collections as the op shops stock them.
We spoke about the post card exchange 1 April 2014, reminder than the edition needs to be either 11 or 12 if you want to keep a copy – info online.
We had a good turnout, about 10 people showed up, all very excited and enthusiastic to share our ideas.
