Event Time:

Our 8-week Introduction to printing techniques explores a range of different printing techniques. You will learn how to combine them to produce exciting, and sometimes surprising, artistic effects. No experience necessary, everyone is welcome!

When: Beginning on Thursday 2 May for eight weeks, 6.30pm to 9pm (2.5 hours). There will be a half term break on Thursday 30 May.

Format: Guided by an experienced printmaker and artist, you will cover techniques such as monoprint, drypoint etching, collagraph and others. You’ll also learn how you can continue creating at home by hand printing or by using the collagraph plates in mixed media collages. You don’t need any drawing skills: you will get great results, whether abstract or illustrative, funky or traditional,

Materials: All materials are included, but you are welcome to bring your own tools or images for inspiration.

Tutor: Your tutor Sherry Rea is an artist and printmaker, working from her studio in Elsworth surrounded by inspirational fields, flowers, trees, birds and her chickens. She has a background in Biological sciences, and continues tutoring in biology. Her artwork is inspired by her passion for biodiversity.

Cost: £200

Accessibility: The Rowan building is wheelchair friendly and has accessible facilities. Please get in touch with us to let us know if there is something you need to be able to participate in our courses.
