A fun day

I've taught 3 lino workshops recently and while they were tiring they were also wonderful. It was a great reminder of how therapeutic creativity is.
Jenny, Joanne and Paula joined me this time.

Jenny found the right angle for her board.

Joanne printed her sample fish and below is her inked up lino block - a beautiful butterfly, I forgot to photograph the actual print. 
Jenny's flowers showed her great design skills.
A busy day!
Paula's design is a good example of the simplicity I advise for a day's workshop.
White on  black paper looks good.
A successful day!
I'll end with a family theme, so important at the moment. Mia, Wills girlfriend is staying with us from New Zealand.
She cooked us a sensational Balinese meal. These are steamed fish parcels - fish tum.
We also had rice, beef dendeng ragi and urap - a wonderful vegetable stir fry.
I was sous chef for this yummy, spicy, aromatic meal; lots of chopping!
I've so enjoyed cooking with Mia.


  1. Anna I've been very lax in blog reading since the new year and have just read your previous post. I can't say I know how you feel because I don't, I can only imagine how it feels to have a child go through such a serious operation and recovery. Will sounds like a wonderful man, it's amazing how those that are actually going through it remain positive, leaving the rest of us standing in awe at their bravery and courage.
    How brilliant that you have such a great family to give you and Will support through this and lovely that Will's girlfriend is visiting and she cooks too! As always the work your students produce is beautiful, you must be a great teacher Anna. x
