Collagraph Print The Landscape

Creative Learning |
22nd June 2019

Tutor Penny Hunt | 10.30am – 4.30pm | £63

Make your own set of prints of a favourite landscape using collagraph – a technique in which a collaged printing plate is made, sealed, then inked and printed from to make a small edition.

What will the course or workshop cover and how will it be taught?
In the morning we will select photos or sketches to work from and you will be shown examples of prints and printing plates made using the same techniques you will be using. After a demonstration you will then begin making your plate using carborundum, emulsion, cutting and tearing. Once your plate is made it will be dried and sealed.

After lunch, you will be shown how to ink and wipe your plate before printing and then be able to produce your own small edition of prints.

You will be given further information on where to buy materials and other printmakers who also use similar techniques.

What do I need to bring with me?
Please wear old clothes, bring an apron and any images that you may want to use; mountains, lakes, waterfalls or your garden? These can be your own photographs or sketches or can be ripped out of newspapers or magazines.

Are there any additional costs?
No additional costs

About the tutor
Based in the Yorkshire Dales, Penny’s studio gives wide open windswept views of mountains, moorlands and mist; her work is about the little things that make up that landscape of freedom, the places where you feel the full force of wind and weather and find some perspective on life.

Water is a huge source of inspiration and the surrounding rivers and waterfalls also provide a great source of ideas, drawings are often developed into collagraph plates and printed, sometimes including elements of the landscape in the design but always trying to convey a feeling of atmosphere rather than detail.

Her Fine Art degree, MA and many years teaching helped develop her paintings and printmaking, each material feeds back into the other, the layering, overprinting and intaglio techniques are present in all.

Penny is secretary of both Three Peaks Arts and Cumbria Printmakers and teaches printmaking at the Brewery Arts Centre in Kendal.
