In September we went on a free ‘taster’ “Introduction to Printing” workshop at the local library. These workshops have been organised by the French inter library system here in the Tarn et Garonne to introduce the general public to the processes involved in creating a book.
Each session is led by an artist with their work usually on exhibition in the library. The artist for this session was Muriel Limonet, she was so helpful, she did a quick demo first on how to use the cutting tools on the square wooden boards, then gave everyone individual tuition and ideas.
Using simple rollers and pads of ink we were able to print off from our boards and produced some amazing little prints!
It was totally absorbing and can be done quite cheaply with no expert equipment required. Just a few different sized cutting tools, printers ink, rollers and bits of plywood.
Dans le cadre des ateliers “à la découverte des livres” mis en place par la communauté de commune QRGA, l’atelier techniques de “gravure et impression” animé par Muriel Limonet, aura lieu à la médiathèque de Caylus
