This workshop in conjunction with an exhibition with Vanessa Edwards at Solander Gallery 'From a bird that no longer sings for your musket', which runs from 19 July-18 August 2012.
Participants will start with the most basic forms of printmaking and work towards more detail technical processes. Students will be given written hand outs and hands on teaching to provide and support all levels of learning. The studio day will be broken down by demonstrations in the morning to print preparation and followed by good experimentation working towards a good understanding of the print processes and to achieve a strong body of prints.
Students will explore multi layered printing from relief surfaces and dry point using plexi plate, stencil cutting and other techniques to enhance their work. It aims are to look at a variety of materials and mark making through basic print processes to create a rich woven image. ‘It’s about introducing new ideas and skills that students can adopt and extend on, in their own practice’.
This two day workshop is designed to develop new technical skills in the medium of print from a traditional understanding to a contemporary art practice. It is an opportunity for students to work through a number of ideas and conceptual frame works to create there own artist language within this medium.
