The Tactile Timeline research begins

We’ve made a great start to our latest art project. Xtina Lamb from Intra talked about print making and led us through the process of creating mono-types.  An interesting time was had by all thinking in reverse, working out how to mask a print area and why we might do that, why we ink up a printing plate then ink up another plate?

The objects we have in mind so far vary from books, a guide dog, keys, a gas meter, a camera and our dinner!  Follow our blog to see how we get on over the next few weeks.  We hope these photos show what a great start we’ve made.

It was lovely to welcome new faces to the art group and also Rosie the guide dog, she definitely made an impression and we agree with her that she really is extremely important and should be considered for the tactile timeline!
