Yesterday visitors to Whitton Small Press made some beautiful linocuts based on an old map of Whitton. For most participants, many of whom are local artists, this was their first experiments with the medium, which makes the results of the two hour workshop even more extraordinary. Emily and I plan to make one of their edition into a little book.
After school, we had 28 smaller visitors who made portraits of Sir John Suckling out of rubber stamps. Suckling was a well known 17th Century Poet who lived in Whitton.
