We are pleased to announce New Dates for the Summer Programme of Print workshops

Sat 30th April – Lino Printing–  Learn how to create a series of multi coloured Lino prints from intricately cut lino blocks using the ‘reduction’ method and the Albion Press – with Sally Tyrie

Sat 11th June – Collagraph techniques – learn about methods of creating unique and textural Collagraph plates and how to make a series of colourful and exciting prints from your plates, using the etching press – with Sally Tyrie

Sat 2nd July – Expressive Mark Making in Printmaking – learn about some of the more ‘painterly’ processes you can use when combining the use of the etching press with multilayered mono print methods.

On this one day workshop you will have the opportunity to make a group of striking prints by combining the more ‘painterly’ and expressive quality of mono print mark making with the linear, drawn and more precise quality of dry point intaglio methods. You will work with the etching press and explore how to create a series of multilayered prints by combining these two exciting methods together. You will use artist quality oil based inks and specialist printmaking paper.

Fee for each workshop is £55 with discounts for booking 2 or more workshops in advance.
Times ; 10.30 – 4
Location – Forge Studios, Hertford Road, Digswell, Herts, AL6 0BU – 5 min drive from A1 junction 4
