Blackwell's Crafternoon

On Sunday I was at Blackwell's for part of the Love Charing Cross Road festival. In my Colour & Count books with Blue Apple Books, I go over some basic printmaking techniques, and I was at the festival to demonstrate printmaking using everyday items such as leaves, play-doh, cardboard, and poster paint. The event was open to adults and children of any age and artistic skill.

There was lots going on at the festival including free face painting across the road in Foyle's, so I decided I'd better get my war paint on before getting down to business.

Sarah at Blackwell's had done a fantastic job of getting things together together for our crafting session.  I think the bubble wrap prints are especially awesome.

This is a print I made using cardboard, in case you can't tell, it is a sad elephant.

Francis' crafting skills put me to shame.

Thank you for having me, Blackwell's! See you next year!
