The eziKut plates are so easy to carve with the Japanese carving tools that I import. Talented members of WAI have drawn onto the eziKut plate with a pencil, carved using the 'High grade' v tools, inked up and printed onto a variety of fabrics. The fabric pieces were then ironed and sewn into cushions. The cushions have been presented on display at the Palmerston Noorth City Library and sold for $40 as fundraising for the upcoming exhibition by the artists.
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.
