Traditional printmaking with Elizabeth from People Studio

 

Elizabeth is a printmaker. She uses traditional materials and methods to produce beautifully printed cards and posters. Using a vintage Adana printing press she reflects on the process of printing; “what I love about printing is that it takes time, it takes time to get all the blocks lined up just right, there’s lots of room for trial and errors, it doesn’t matter if it’s not perfect first time. It’s experimental. Everything digital is fast paced and instant but printing like this slows everything down and you have to take your time.”

We talked about the benefits of slowing things down in our lives generally, you notice more, see more, feel more. Such a lovely afternoon spent with a very creative and thoughtful woman.
