🎨 Introduction to Printmaking Workshops 2022
A series of 4 workshops with Ulverston based printmaking group Print Share. Each workshop will introduce you to a different printmaking technique, taught by members of our collaborative printmaking group, in a friendly relaxed environment. You can choose to do a single or multiple workshops, or the whole course.

🎨 Saturday 14th May– Linocut with Claudia Long
Linocut is a relief printmaking technique where a design is cut into a linoleum surface with sharp knives, chisels and gouges. You’ll have the opportunity to create and transfer a design, cut and ink your plate to create a series of prints. You can also experiment with Chine Collé, learning how to use fine papers to bring colour and texture into your prints.

🎨 Saturday 21st May– Monoprint with Marett Troostwyck
Monoprinting is a lovely painterly technique that creates unique prints. It’s a good way to create prints expressively and spontaneously. You’ll have the opportunity to experiment with imagery, mark making, colour, tone and texture using a variety of methods and materials including natural and manufactured textured materials and the use of stencils.

🎨 Saturday 28th May – Drypoint with Vicky Peake
Drypoint is an intaglio printmaking technique where an image is incised into a plate using sharp metal ‘needle’ tools. It’s an expressive printmaking technique which is close to drawing in its immediacy and responsiveness. You’ll learn how to create a plate, ink and clean your plate, soak paper and make a series of prints. You’ll explore drawing or design transfer, mark making, colour and tone and learn how inexpensive materials can be used to make amazing prints.

🎨 Saturday 4th June– Paper Lithography with Anna Litchfield
Paper Lithography is a great way to make monoprints using paper as a plate and Gum Arabic as a resist. It’s based on lithographic techniques and uses high contrast photocopies or drawings in oil based inks to create unique prints. You can use your own photographs or copies of images from papers and magazines can be collaged to create interesting prints– a modern take on a traditional technique.
