20th June 2018

20 June | Wednesday | 10.30am -4.30pm | Karen Lester | £63.00 | max 6 people

Using simple materials, collage and cut to create a card plate to make prints. Create landscape images, abstract forms and patterns easily using this exciting technique.

What do I need to bring with me? Any additional costs?

All equipment and materials supplied.

Print making is messy so wear old clothes! You are advised to bring-

  • An apron or old shirt to protect clothes.
  • Gloves – latex or plastic

Be aware that some inks are oil based and other materials contain solvents which may affect those with certain medical conditions.

Bring ideas! If you have images, photographs or sketches that you would like to work from please bring these. Whilst these techniques lend themselves to abstraction, you may like to have images of buildings, structures, patterns as reference.

Please bring a pen, notebook and your glasses, if you need them.

More details about what the course covers:

Create your own plates from card making textures with collages of carborundum and tape as well as direct scratches and cuts. Experiment with designs and learn how to ink up the plate ready for printing through a press.

Tutor led demonstrations, discussion, example work and handouts will guide you through the processes to create plates, ink up and take prints.

Individuals will be supported throughout. Participants are encouraged to experiment with the emphasis very much on individual practical experience. There will be opportunities to discuss results individually and in the group.

No previous printmaking experience necessary though a general interest in art and creating images will be an advantage.
