My daughter came to me the other day and asked me for help with her GCSE sketch book. She has to have her first course work completed by Thursday.
So yesterday I took her to the studio and showed her how she could develop some of the pieces she had already done using a variety of printmaking techniques including transfer monoprint, linocut and collagraphs. She thought some of what I showed her was 'mint'!
We worked away together for about 3 hours. She turned out some lovely stuff and she said at the end. 'I don't know how you do a whole day here. It's really quite tiring and I'm knackered!'
I just enjoyed spending time with her doing something we clearly both enjoyed.
