PRINTMAKING WITHOUT A PRESS
One day workshop
One day workshop
9:50am - 4:30pm
This is a step-by-step workshop in creating prints without a press, for beginners and those with some experience, however, no formal art training is necessary.
Bold and colourful prints are the order of the day with this workshop. Working with specialist tools and easy to cut lino or plywood, you will learn all you need to know to produce colour prints of two or three colours, using either print registration or the reduction method. You will learn how to equip yourself technically, so that you're in control of your printmaking, and you'll be able to explore the medium's potential freely.
Areas covered will include design and cutting, texture and mark-making, reduction printmaking, multi-coloured prints and registration.
This course invites you to step into the rich world of printing onto paper, and you will discover how to turn your own drawings into distinctive, personal images.
Maximum number of participants for this course: 4
Lunch, tea and coffee are all provided.
What to bring with you
Apron, overall or old clothing that won’t matter if you get oil based inks on. Colour pencils, pencils, pens, rulers. Sketchbooks, drawings, photographs and images from which to make prints.
Optional: (I can loan these items on the day)
Starter printmaking packs will be available to buy on the day.
