Invited by a community project leader, we've a workshop of natural printing organised in Sep. The 2-day workshop started with the intro from basic to the delicate printing techniques. With some rusty nails, vinegar and water we made the iron solution then fun going on......
Lots of laughs and fun filled in the spacious studio.
