I recently went to a local evening workshop on printmaking. It was a bit tricky as I had to ask for help with cutting the Lino and some of the printing too, due to my impairments. So really I couldn’t do much of it and also had to lie in the other room several times to get through the couple of hours. But thanks to the kindness of a near stranger I (we) had something to show for it by the end. It was great to feel part of a group and see what others made.
