relief printing / 凸版印刷


I finally got the works made in the relief printing workshop last Friday. Printmaking is such an amazing medium. With combinations of different colors, endless versions can be produced from a single draft.


There were supposed to be fifteen students in the workshop, but not everyone is so passionate about learning as me. Only seven people showed up, which was good. By the afternoon, the remaining six people had so much fun using the two old pressing machines that date back to 1850. When I told Teresa this, she said she hopes many people in her group will be absent too. I am definitely going back next term to learn other techniques. I did pay exorbitant tuition fees, but I have to admit that it takes the total amount of luck of several lives to be able to use these precious machines!
