Green printing

Updated: Jan 14, 2021

Moving around from place-to-place, putting on printmaking classes and workshops (*imagines self as travelling Victorian medicine man*) means that I need to travel light. However, after packing up from a workshop I always end up with one more thing than when I arrived. A black sack full of rubbish.

Thankfully this rubbish consists of newsprint covered in non-toxic water based paint and although the recycling men don't like it the worms do. Worms you ask? Yes, there's a worm at the bottom of my garden (or in this case, allotment) and his name is Wiggly Woo. I shred the newsprint and add it to the compost bin where the worms and microorganisms break it down ready to be spread on the ground. But instead of sharing a rather unappetising brown mess I thought you might like to see some of the results.
