2. DRYPOINT PRINTING

DRYPOINT PRINTING with ADRIENNE CRADDOCK
Thursday 14th November 10am - 4pm  £62

Everybody has loved this drypoint way of printing. Creating the image is so easy, you can trace from a photo or your drawing, perhaps combine the two. You will work on A4 Rhenalon Plates (thin transparent acrylic sheet) by drawing and scratching into the surface with tools. Adrienne will show you how to create both fine line and tonal areas. Slide your drawings or photos underneath the transparent sheet or just draw freely. Plates are inked and printed onto dampened paper through the press. Adrienne will bring a range of subject matter for you to choose to work from or you can bring your own sketches and photos. All materials are provided.

6. MOKUHANGA Multi Block

Mokuhanga

Japanese Woodcut Multi Block with ROWAN MCONEGAL

Sat 16th/Sun 17th November £120 

Over the weekend you will learn the basic skills to transfer and carve two or three colour separation blocks. The advantage of using multiple blocks (rather than the reduction method) to build up a multi coloured print is that you can keep the block to reprint, carve a new block later to add in layers, or change the work. Usually the lightest colour is printed first, but it depends on the area of each colour to be printed. Large areas tend to be printed last.

This session is for those of you who would like to learn how to take your skills to the next level.

9. LETTERPRESS POSTERS

Make a Letterpress Poster with DULCIE FULTON
Saturday 30th November 10am - 4pm   £62

Working from your chosen word or phrase, use vintage wooden letters and shapes to create and print an A4 or A3 letterpress poster. Because of its age and history, wooden type has a wonderful patina and character; those textures will come through in your prints. Variations in inking and pressure will make each print unique. You'll learn how to compose, set and lock up your type ready for printing, and techniques for inking it up with a hand roller in one or more colours. You will then print it on either a small flatbed press (A4) or the Imperial iron hand press (A3), learning the process of make-ready along the way. High quality cartridge is provided. Some fabulous tactile Somerset Satin cotton rag paper is provided for your final piece with an option to buy more.  If you are not sure what to print on your poster Dulcie is full of inspiring ideas, she will be able to help. Text should be short, Dulcie suggests just about five words would be good.
