In our TuesdayTour of #DCAPrintStudio series, we're now spotlighting various Print Studio users, asking them a bit about their practice, what they've been making during lockdown and how they use the studio. ⁠⠀⁠⠀⁠

Today Hetty Haxworth Prints tells how lockdown has influenced her practice ⁠

"Life changed markedly for me in lockdown, as it did for everyone. With the closure of #DCAprintstudio, and without access to my own studio and press, I spent my time sketching and painting, experimenting with new techniques and enjoying the extraordinary weather that coincided with staying at home. In time, I began to focus on the immediate landscape around me and found comfort in nature. The dry days certainly helped. Much of the subject matter came from a lake within walking distance from my house. I became interested in the reflections in the water and the ever-changing colours in the sky. I wanted to capture the sense of peace, the fleeting nature of the light, and the changing rhythm of the passing days.⁠

In the last month, I have adapted my drawings and have started making small-scale monoprints on my press at home. It feels like a return to the familiar. Yet, I still miss working at my usual press at DCA, and particularly the social side of the workshop and the supportive staff. Working on the large Praga press is also something I’m keen to get back to. Printing on a larger scale encourages risks to be taken, bringing a different energy to the work. However, I am enjoying the challenge of working on a small scale. Constantly adapting always brings something new."⁠
