Mini Print Course in Lauzerte

pop up 6

Plates in the copper sulphate bath

Etching course in Lauzerte, in a beautiful building at the top of the hill of this hilltop town, put at the disposal of a group of artists ((Adpic) by the mayor, M Jean-Claude Giordana, himself an artist, but where would you find this in Britain? So this is where our exhibition is – ‘our’ being four print artists, Dominique Medard, Marjon Mudde, Ros Marchant and me, plus the Dove mini prints. And, as I explained in my last post, we had turned a couple of side rooms into a ‘pop up’ studio for the 2 day course. Enter the students: 6 very keen people with quite a bit of artistic experience between them (but all new to aluminium etching), and voila, we had a fabulous time. Here are some pictures (the etchings are all 10 x 10 cms)

Taking a break in my gallery

Many thanks to Ros Marchant for facilitating the course and being my ‘Jolie Assistante”, and to Marjon Mudde, the co-ordinator of ‘Accomplissements’, for being so welcoming, and also for taking some of these photos. I’ve had a fabulous time here, and it isn’t over yet!  I’ve moved into the pop-up studio….here’s yesterday’s etching:

and lastly, I can’t resist showing you the Saturday market (today) that reminded me of all that’s best about France:

    Really beautiful prints. Would love to know about their starting points.

    • Their starting points were generally a complete unknowingness about what was going to come next. The best state to be in when creating work, in my opinion.

    • Miss you too! Ros and I are now playing with the idea of a Dove/Espace twinning…it’s already started, really. We just need a committee now (excuse to come here and have a great time, and vice versa)!
