Printmaking is one of the oldest forms of image-making, and involves the transferral of an inked image from one surface to another. This workshop provides an introduction to the world of printmaking for raw beginners, and will cover monoprinting, relief printing, and intaglio printmaking.
This workshop is perfect for painters, drawers, or sculptors who wish to translate their work into printmaking, or simply for those who are curious about this wonderful medium!
Participants are encouraged to supply their own notebook/visual diary, paper (cartridge and heavy rag paper), and sketches/preliminary material. These items will be available for purchase on the day from the ArtWorld Studio Gallery Shop.
In compliance with Workshop Health & Safety regulations, all participants must bring their own aprons and wear closed-in shoes.
Tea and coffee will be provided.
