Today we were lucky enough to participate in a Demonstration presented by Leona of S&S Creativity.  

Our workshop was very successful with 15 members in attendance. Leona was very happy to demonstrate the Akua Inks and Pin Press for free and while she wasn’t a printmaker (we were not too intimidating i hope) she was happy for us to have a play with the products to see how we liked them. Georgia really got into it so we look forward to some feed back at a later date perhaps.
The reduction monotype approach was quite interesting and while i have layered plates before the wiping out of sections was a great idea.The pin press was a good option for those with limited space but a bit limited in its application.I hope you all enjoyed the morning, any feedback or ideas are welcome.
