You will learn a number of different methods during the day and your final prints can be abstract or representational, monochrome or bursting with colour, according to your personal preference.

The technique is suitable for all levels of ability and is perfect for those who want the freedom to express themselves on paper. You will end up with ink on your hands and probably your face too, but you will have made a collection of exciting and highly individual prints.
