A day at The Curwen Studio yesterday printing Improvised Structures. The print is a series of vignettes from pen and ink drawings made in the late Summer and Autumn. Children’s camps, rope swings, fencing and barriers built from materials to hand.
The original sketches were drawn in dip pen and iron gall ink onto hand made 17th century recipe paper. The images were then reduced, re-drawn onto film and exposed onto litho plates. The print is an edition of 35, aprox A3 size, in 3 colours: pale grey/blue, autumnal brown and blue/black. It will be available at our open studios – Saturday December 10th and 17th. Price TBC but roughly £70 unframed, £130 framed.
Thanks to Jenny and to Mary, the new printer at the Curwen and a graduate of the Royal College of Art printmaking course.
