Woodblock Printing

I first tried woodblock printing in 2007 with He Weimin.  I started again in 2019 with Emma James at Curwen Print Study Centre, and Ralph Kiggell.  Since then I have made some progress in weekends with  Laura Boswell.  Of course I need a lot more practice …

I am fairly pleased with these glowing lanterns.

I always return to my favourite subject – ancient Chinese bronzes.
