Chocolate Block Printing

Year 4 Saffron were extremely fortunate to take part in a whole day fun filled with art activities, linked to our topic of chocolate. The day began by looking at the origins of chocolate before exploring Mayan glyphs to help us design our block printing plate. We carved our designs onto polystyrene sheets using tracing paper and pencils. Once our designs were ready, we used black and brown block printing ink and rollers to fully cover our designs. We then printed our designs onto card. The best part of all was when we were introduced to gold leaf- yes, real gold was added to particular elements of our design to make our prints that little bit more special. Thank you to Bow Arts for this wonderful day.
