Kathrin Knapp, artist in residence.
Kathrin stepped in the door of Homeprint Studio and started carving. So many ideas to try out. Here Kathrin is carving with the carving tools I import from JAPAN. First step is to draw a large simple outline of the image onto MDF or lino. Then carve the outline with my custom made 'V' tool. Using the Homeprint A3 hydraulic yellowXpress printing press Katherine is printing 5 or 6 copies in each chosen colour onto white and coloured paper. Next step is to carve more detail and even new information into the carvings then I will show Kathrin how to over print with the 2nd colour.
