A very popular course as an introduction or a refresher – spend one day making plates and one day printing them.
The first day is spent making plates, using card, cement, glue, grit and various found materials. The course covers basic plate making techniques such as masking, layering, cutting into the surface, and the always popular dribbly glue.
You will understand how to create texture and line as well as tones from very dark to very light in your plates using a combination of everyday materials like sticky tape, sand paper.
On the second day we print; combining colours, intaglio and relief techniques, chine collee, masking and overprinting, and possibly a bit of viscosity…..
Suitable for beginners or those with some experience of printmaking.
"The days passed in a flash, it was absorbing, enjoyable, creative and good fun. Emily’s wonderful portfolio of samples was inspirational.
I had had a brilliant exciting creative and colourful time which I would like to repeat. Very good value for money."
