speedball/softblock printing


Am working on a new art and craft session for teenagers..(gulp), and am thinking of doing some printing with them based on 1950s patterns and designs.  I have been trying out speedball printing today - it's like lino printing but easier and I love it.




I thought we could try out some prints on paper and also give some a go on fabric and perhaps sneak a bit of sewing in there too.
