Fee is £70 – Times 10.30 – 4 pm

This one day workshop will give you the opportunity to learn, and expand on, the techniques of Linoprinting.

This workshop is open to beginners looking to try something new and to those already familiar with the medium and want to expand on their knowledge. The subject of your design is completely up to you although there will be an Autumn theme in mind with a selection of seed heads and seasonal plants on hand to draw from on the day.
All inks, tools, lino and paper for printing will be provided…Plus tea and cake !

Saturday 17th November – Drypoint etching combined with Monoprint and Carborundum with Sally Tyrie

Fee is £70 – Times – 10.30 – 4pm

On this one day workshop you will explore ways of combining the linear, drawn and exquisite marks obtained with Drypoint and the more painterly and textural approach of monoprint and carborundum. You will work with a Rhenalon plate and have the opportunity to create marks using a range of tools. This technique is a very immediate and straightforward process which produces unique prints with immense depth. This day is suitable for beginners as well as those wishing to explore and improve their results. You will use Oil based Litho ink.
