16 Oct Rhonda Ellem: Repeat Block Printing
Rhonda Ellem has years of teaching experience and is passionate about lino printing. She had just returned from a trip to Europe where she learnt from UK’s Hugh Dunford Wood. She came back inspired and excited to share her new and extended knowledge. Students ranged from more experienced, repeat workshoppers to complete beginners. Students were encouraged to draw their own designs and then Rhonda took them through the processes of creating a half drop repeat pattern to be used on wallpaper or fabric.
Enthusiastic students have since come back to the studio to print more of their designs on a printing day. Students tried printing on leather in preparation for Mark Jones’ leather bag making. One student even printed her own blinds!
