I have been really looking forward to getting to this stage and having sought out and bought a very inviting range of art materials, various paints and materials am eager to about try out a variety of techniques. I have done some basic printing when attending courses as a Primary Art coordinator and always enjoyed running workshops for children and teachers but its been a good few years since I last indulged in printmaking. I have decided to concentrate on block printing and relief printing and then some stencilling and masking. Time-permitting, I hope to go onto lino-cutting. I am fascinated by Japanese wood cuts and paper stencil cutting (Katazome) and hope to make the most of my time in Japan to take a closer look at these arts.
