It’s all gone course-tastic at Symons Towers

I’m busy doing two courses at the moment (see previous three posts) and am rushed off my feet trying to squeeze in all the work from the annual ‘its the end of the financial year and you have to finish this project now!’ rush.  So blogs-a-plenty to come but for the meantime, I’m going to stick to what I’m doing on my two brilliant, if a bit disparate, courses: ‘Advanced Certificate in Garden Design’ and ‘The Complete Printmaker’.

Week Two and Three on The Complete Printmaker looked at Drypoint and Carborundum.  I discovered a love of dremelling to make my drypoint plates.  Here’s a couple I produced of some sea birds – the Avocet and the Sanderling.  I’ll post the actual prints once they’ve dried off – they’re very similar (but the other way round!).
