Please select and pay for only one session of the above options - you will be automatically enrolled in the full weekend.
This weekend workshop is designed for people to make contrasting dynamic prints using methods of tradition, experimentation and handy shortcuts in colour and black and white.
What you'll learn in this woodblock printing class:
It will be a hands on demonstration into the world of woodblock printmaking including the rules and process of the print studio- from the idea to the finished print. The process will be to make background mosaic patterned prints from printing one single black in different ways. They link up to make contrasting patterns then printing a silhouette block over the top of that. It is a great way to go through the whole process of printing so you get a feel for it then you can elaborate and experiment as much as you like. These workshops use water bases inks which is easy on clean up and friendly on the environment.
You will only need a pencil, old shirt and some ideas for images you would like to depict in a silhouette form in print, don't worry if you can't think of anything, usually things will come to you while you're making your pattern prints.
The best thing about this workshop is that you will walk away with a folio of great hand made prints to hang on your wall or give away to your friends and family!
