Greece, August 2007

In August 2007 Jeff attended a workshop with Mitch Lyons in the Skopelos Foundation of the Arts on the Greek Island of Skopelos.

Mitch Lyons is the inventor of a rather simple method of making clay monoprints. “Since 1968 Mitch Lyons has been pioneering his image making from a slab of clay. Coloured slips using China clay and permanent pigments are brushed on, dried and rolled into the clay Once the slab is rolled flat, a moistened piece of paper/canvass is placed over the slab. Pressure is applied using a rolling pin to transfer the clay slips onto the substrate.”
