Gyotaku Printing 11 Feb 2015

Two artists from Porthmeor Studios in St Ives came in to visit both Helford and Fal class last Tuesday.  They brought a variety of locally caught fish with them for the children to use to produce their own ink images.  They were told of how the Japanese traditionally used this technique to record their fishing catch.  We really enjoyed using the octopus ink for the printing!
