Chloe and Ellie clean and sort lead type ornament.
Ellie Keats and Chloe Dickinson (WWOOFers from Vermont, USA) out in the sun cleaning and sorting a tray of mixed ornaments. The next step is to add them to the collection of ornaments held in the Homeprint Collection then make space available for the new ones discovered. Finally some research is required to hunt through the old type catalogues to see if we can identify the ornament and give them names.
Married to Allison for 45 years, 3 sons, David, Russell and Paul. I have been primary school teaching in New Zealand for 32 years and for the last 11 years have been developing a Book Art Studio, Library, Art Gallery and substantial warehouse of printmaking equipment and materials. We have a Letterpress Printing and Bookbinding Museum that is a working collection. I have invented an A4 relief printing press and an A3 hydraulic printing press that I manufacture and sell throughout New Zealand with sales into 5 countries overseas. Allison and I have written, illustrated, set, printed, bound and published over 100 titles of artist books.
