Adrienne will be doing Monoprint, Drypoint and other print disiplines. Her Print Sessions are lively, inspirational and very popular. We are running more of these after h.Art 

Perspex plates are inked up with rollers and then drawn into with a variety of tools and rags. Effects can be created using white spirit, talcum powder, embossed wallpaper and paper stencils as well as painting inks directly onto the plate. You can also slide a photo or drawing under the perspex to aid design. The prints are made by building up successive layers of colour. This will be a lively session and you have the opportunity to make spontaneous marks making for bright colourful expressive work. Have fun, make spontaneous narks, don't worry - there is no 'wrong way'.  if you are not happy with the something you can just rub it out with a piece of rag.  Simples!

10am - 4pm both days

This fab Mokuhanga course will be repeated in late September or early October 2019. Please register your interest and include a contact phone number. theprintshed@swinmoor.net

Japanese Woodblock printmaking (Mokuhanga ) is a traditional art which has long been admired by Westerners. This relief print method uses a unique registration system, together with compatible materials comprising carved woodblocks, Japanese paper (washi), and water based pigments. The image is carved using a selection of special knives and chisels. Rowan McOnegal will show you how make your design, transfer it to the block and how to apply the water-based inks using a brush. Using a unique registration system the blocks are then hand printed with a baren, the ink is pressed deeply into the absorbent Japanese paper. 

This Japanese method is low tech and environmentally friendly. It is the particular combination of materials and processes which result in the unique quality of a Mokuhanga print. Rowan, who travelled to Japan specifically to learn Mokuhanga, will help you immerse yourself in Japanese aesthetics for the weekend.

All materials are provided.
