Linocut at Fisher Arts and Social

Another great morning today with all the folks at Fisher Arts and Social Club

We brought our press along again, this time to do linocut printing. After a quick demonstration of the technique everybody got stuck in. Two hours later all the folks had finished their designs and printed off at least two prints!

Many thanks to Sophie for inviting us back and to all the participants who made it so enjoyable.

Fisher Arts and Social

Great morning today with all the folks at Fisher Arts and Social Club

It was their first dabble with drypoint. Out of the block at 10.30am a quick demonstration and everyone created a print they were proud to take home. All in just two hours.

Fisher Arts and Social Club was founded by Sophie last year. They provide creative sessions for mature people and their carers. They are dementia friendly and wheelchair accessible. The group meets each Thursday morning at the Fisher Theatre in Bungay. The goal of each session is to provide the perfect mix of art, cake, friends and laughter !
