Keith Simmonds (Arts co-ordinator - artscope) + Roberto Bono (Volunteer worker) + Monica Furlan (Volunteer worker)

Workshop 2 - 18 Nov. 2003

The group were introduced to the various 'moves' of the individual chess
pieces, and explored the visual patterns that these moves created.
Individual pieces were selected, and simple foam printing blocks produced.
These blocks were used to create repeated relief prints in black and white
based on the actual movements that the specific pieces make on the
chessboard. A rich tapestry of intricate prints were produced. The group
viewed some resources from the British Museum depicting the famous Lewis
Chess Pieces from C12th, as a brief introduction to how chess sets have been
depicted through the ages.
