blackbird camp

For the last 2 weeks, my 13 yr old niece, Leesa, has been visiting. I convinced her to come to Louisiana by telling her she'd be coming to "blackbird camp". Besides packaging cards, gluing notebooks, she also carved some linoleum and made some very cool prints. (we also went to a pottery class, I'll post more later). Here are some pics of the printing in process. She wanted many colors so we decided to hand ink the blocks and print with the Vandy. Leesa is a natural printer, she blew me away at how fast she picked it up, even treadle driving the C&P.

yay printmaking!!
