Pupils first prints

Pupils from St Mary’s Catholic High School in Astley spent the day with printmaker Alan Birch ¬†enhancing their coursework. The ¬†25 pupils from Year 10, 12 and 13 worked tirelessly throughout the day using their themes of natural forms and the figure to produce a range of prints. Techniques explored included drypoint, relief, chine collie, colour printing and mixed media prints.
