I took part in an "Introduction to etching" class at City Lit recently, which I really really enjoyed :) It was great to do something a little different, and to learn new things.
Our tutor Cath was brilliant, and crammed so much in over the course of 2 days.
I did do a bit of etching when I was studying for my BA, but that was over 10 years ago so I was a little bit rusty. I particularly enjoyed Chine-colle, which was something I'd never done before - a process quite similar to collage, and a great way to add colour and texture. I loved the unpredictability of it all, not knowing the result until you peeled the paper off the plate. Very exciting!

I haven't done these in a while..."What I wore today".
I had a lovely weekend with friends and in-laws, bulking up with lots and lots of layers and yummy food :)
Since then, I've been mostly cooped up in the flat, wrapped up in a blanket and attached to the radiator. It is so very cold...brrrrrrrrr!
