Product description

In an age of mass production, something handmade is to be treasured. Printmaking at home is surprisingly easy whatever your level of artistic ability and has become hugely popular with the new generation of crafternooners. Gorgeous photography by top lifestyle photographer Yuki Sugiura captures the pleasure of printmaking and the step-by-step instructions for each project are beautifully illustrated with Elizabeth's watercolours. All the key printmaking techniques are explored, including monoprinting, screen-printing and relief printing. Elizabeth has devised techniques for the home printmaker that do not involve expensive equipment or materials, but call on items you may have around the house, including children's craft foam, packet gelatine and a computer.
