Exciting news for Mintprint fans!

I’m working on my new online shop! I’m determined to get this launched next week, so watch this space! It’s hard work getting to grips with all this techy stuff, but I’ll get there. Without putting on 2 stones. From eating packets and packets of comfort biscuits. I hope… 

I taught such a nice group of beginner printers at the weekend, I liked them so much I forgot to take pics of their work and took pics of them instead!!! But you get the idea. Some really lovely clean prints were printed (I was very strict - NO FINGERPRINTS!!) a lovely day was had by all. — Lino Printed Greetings Cards at West Yorkshire Printworkshop (6 photos) I taught such a nice group of beginner printers at the weekend, I liked them so much I forgot to take pics of their work and took pics of them instead!!!

2 new designs from Mintprint. Thought i’d have a crack at doing something a bit more respresentative and less abstract, but don’t worry, got plenty more abstract beauties raring to jump out of my sketchbook and into the real world! Note: these lions are BIG, and so are the doggies, going to be at least 8cm when printed, so not a ditsy print. 2 new designs from Mintprint.

Thought I’d show some work in progress, to show a bit how it’s done and how it looks as it’s being done! I’ve been printing a few lengths of fabric and these are soon to be lovely lampshades which I’ll put on my Etsy store as soon as they’re back and photographed! If you’re interested in any of these shades please do contact me at miriam@mintprint.org. Thought I’d show some work in progress, to show a bit how it’s done and how it looks as it’s being done!

Green Reads Leeds

Just wanted to write a quick post about Green Reads Leeds bookgroup, a new book group in Headingley. I was watching the news a while ago on a friday night. They were reporting the unprecedented melting of polar ice this year. It upset me so much, and I was shocked that this story was not repeated in the news the next day. It seems to have been brushed under the carpet completely.

I am really frightened about the state of the environment and I don’t see any leadership from the government or anybody else on what we can do to reverse the effects of global climate change. This seems to me the most important issue that we’re facing, but no-one is dealing with it on a daily basis which seems completely crazy.

Catherine has decided to run a new book group (she has run lots of book groups in the past) where we look at the environment through reading long and short texts and look at film. I feel that once I have more of a grasp of what’s going on, i’ll be empowered to make better arguments and let my voice be heard, as at the moment I’m not sure what i think or what’s going on. So that’s why I’m going to Green Reads. If you’re interested in coming along please do contact me at miriamtrent@hotmail.com.

Tonight is the inaugural meeting for Green Reads, a brand new reading group in Headingley with a focus on the environment. I’m going… come along and see what it’s all about, tonight at 7 at Heart, Headingley. 


p.s. please note the Mintprint designed flier!!

I’ve had a great, tiring, but very successful weekend, teaching LARGE SCALE linoprinting to a group of 6 enthusiastic printmakers @WYPW. The course focussed on getting the most out of one plate printing, through chine colle, blends and masks. The workshoppers made some really great prints! Here are a selection of photos from the workshop.  I’ve had a great, tiring, but very successful weekend, teaching LARGE SCALE linoprinting to a group of 6 enthusiastic printmakers @WYPW.

I made this animation during my 2nd year of uni. It’s not very Mintprint-ish but it’s quite cute, so I thought I’d give it an airing. Voices are of my niece and nephew Elly and Mick and of my brother @mistertrent. It’s about as basic as you could get, and soon after i gave up on filmmaking and went down the road of printmaking which was a good thing for me!!
