On this two day printmaking course, we will begin the day on the beach collecting source material for your prints. This will be followed by a demonstration of materials and techniques in the studio. We will explore the spontaneity of creating monochrome monotype prints with David, and on day two, using the methods learned through this process, combined with drypoint, we will make monochrome and colour prints with Hanneke. Participants will be encouraged to experiment with wipe out, tonking, and direct painting methods and using found materials to create textures in their prints. Suitable for all abilities.
*Cost does not include accommodation. Artform also provide an artist accommodation package.
Details on art materials required to participate in the course will be provided after signing up to the course.
