Another visit to The Glennie school, for some workshops on etching and Artist books. Through the rose gardens to the new art rooms. which overlook the sporting green with a view back to the historic town. Being at Glennie is like being on a film set with it’s expanse of historic buildings and boarding school, the presence of past students evident in photographs on the walls.
On the first day the students made 3 styles of books: a concertina book, a sculptural book and a sewn pamphlet. They made their own hand printed covers to bind them with.
The second day was a day of etching aluminium plates with copper sulphate solution, then printing them. Their project was about home, which for Glennie students can be a very long way away.
Some photos from the day:
