To work along you will need:
Recycling! Save printed cardboard (the shiny sort), Tetra Pak containers, polystyrene sheets and plastic milk bottles
Paper (cartridge or watercolour to print on), plus some thin scrap paper
Printing ink (although you can do some techniques with acrylic paint if you wish to experiment). We recommend a safe-wash ink that does not require a solvent for clean up. Laura is using Cranfield printing ink.
Printing press – Laura uses a pasta machine. If you don’t have one, you can try burnishing with a spoon instead.
If you are using a pasta machine you’ll need to cut two pieces of felt or wadding larger than your print plate and paper.
Sharp knife and cutting mat
Container and water in which to soak paper, and a clean tea towel
Pin or large needle, or other alternative sharp, pointy tool
You might also want to have on hand:
A permanent marker
Flat tray palette
