SWLA Drypoint Workshop – an exciting day!

Last Sunday at the Mall Galleries we had a group of really enthusiastic participants all willing to collaborate and really let go enabling them to push the limits of the medium – and their own creative leanings.  Thanks to all of them, and to Greg Poole for sharing the tutoring.

Some of the images produced during the day, either collaboratively (working in pairs on the same matrix), or individually working on their own image later in the day.

The non-figuration emphasis meant everyone abandoning their comfort zone for a while and lots of collaborative effort led to some exciting results and a lively atmosphere.
