After creating their own drawings, the seven youngsters who participated in the three-hour class transfered their artworks onto plastic and copper plates, using a variety of mark-making techniques. The plates were then inked and printed in colour on to dampened paper using an etching press.

Cambridgeshire-based artist Susie, a member of the Printmakers Council, regularly exhibits her work around the country and abroad and is an established tutor of printmaking.
