You can also use pictures that you have photocopied from a book or magazine, which are high in contrast.

NB. IMAGES/PICTURES FROM YOUR COMPUTER PRINTER DO NOT WORK WITH THIS PROCESS, SO THEY MUST BE PHOTOCOPIED,

I will have my laptop and specialist printer with me to print pictures from your memory stick, although I cannot spend too much time doing this as it will take time away from the days’ activities, so please come prepared.

I look forward to seeing you …Louise Moore
