Tuesday mornings from 9 - 11:30am
Term 1 5 - 26 March 2024 at Atwell House.
My printmaking short courses run throughout the year and each in course we explore a different printmaking method such as, monotype, relief and intaglio printing, artist books, collagraphs and more. The class is all about playful printmaking and learning to think outside the box, exploring textures, mark making and layering through creative techniques and approaches.
This term we will be exploring the printmaking technique of collagraphy and combining it with line work. Traditionally collagraphs are made by adhering textures or thin card onto a rectangular surface. We will be doing things a little differently and making individual collagraph shapes. Inking up is simpler and less messy with this method and using shapes allows numerous possibilities for arrangement and composition. Choose your own subject matter or use some of the reference images provided for inspiration. We will learn about intaglio and relief inking up methods, how to layer colour and pointers for creating a good composition.
All printmaking materials, tools and inks are included in the price but you will need to supply your own paper. Please wait for the first class before purchasing your own paper. Paper is available to buy in class or Jacksons nearby.
