Beginners/Experienced Class: Wednesday, 11th June, 6pm – 9pm
All materials included and limitless tea, coffee and biscuits.
These inspiring courses offer beginners and those with more experience in printmaking the opportunity to explore a wide range of printing techniques over 6 weeks. Beginners will experience both hands-on training and demonstrations. Techniques will include monoprinting by hand and with a press. relief, collagraphs, drypoint, chine colle and carborundum prints. The course gives an excellent overview of many printing methods and processes with the exception of acid etching.
For the more experienced, there is the opportunity to explore ideas further and also perhaps try out more techniques. These sessions are more self negotiated but include technical help and guidance.
The studio is well equipped with a Tofko Prof etching press which can print up to A2 size prints and an exciting choice of different inks.
Please bring any ideas with you, sketches etc. you may have, pencils and an apron if you have one.
To book your place or a chat about the course call Helen on 01598 760658. or email her at email@example.com
The classes are held at: 360 Degrees Trust, The Old Sawmills, Filleigh, North Devon, EX32 0RN
Monoprint is one of most accessible and easiest ways to start printmaking. Not only is it very immediate but allows freedom and creativity.
