Dartford Assembly: Monoprinting Workshop

Last Saturday, Dartford Arts Network ran the first of their Dartford Assembly printmaking workshops. We got to One Bell Corner bright and early with bright flouro colour paints on hand. We tried to not get blown away by the wind! We asked everyone to tell us their favourite place, object or thing about Dartford, and finish the sentences, “I remember,” “Do you know…?” or “I Wish…”. It was great to see you all. Join us in two weeks for the next printmaking workshop!

Here are some images from the day.
