Printmaking Course

28 May @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

Printmaking

Print Share is really pleased to continue to work in partnership with Printfest Ulverston to promote printmaking in Ulverston.

You can book now via www.printsharelakes.co.uk/workshops

🎨 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.

Venue: Swarthmoor Reading Room, on the corner of Fox Street/ Park Road, Swarthmoor, Ulverston, LA12 OHJ
Cost: £45 per workshop or £160 for the 4 workshop course. Concessions available upon request for people on a low income.
Time: 10am to 3pm

Anthony Hewitt & Friends

1 June @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Anthony Hewitt
Anthony Hewitt rounds-up top talent from across the globe for this much-loved, traditional format of chamber works for piano and strings.

The opening concert of this year’s Ulverston International Music Festival immediately sets the tone of the festival with two great British chamber works at the heart of the programme, written only a few years apart at the turn of the 20th century. Bridge was made famous by his pupil Benjamin Britten, who gave the quartet a glowing review: “Sonorous yet lucid, with clear lines, graceful to listen to and play….Brahms happily tempered with Faure”. Brahms’ influence is also clear in Vaughan Williams Piano Quintet (which uses the same combination of instruments as Schubert’s Trout, performed in the 2021 festival). Rich textures are in abundance and highly emotive melodies are characteristic of the composer, but an ever present narrative sees plenty of shifts to lighter moods, with pastoral interludes evoking English landscapes and country life. 

Dvorak’s F minor Piano Trio is ‘sandwiched’ in-between, but only in the sense of its position in the programme as it is a substantial work of over forty minutes. More serious than its famous cousin – the Dumky Trio – it is yet more profound and captivating for its touching, melancholic themes, dramatic episodes and lively rhythms.  

Vaughan Williams’ music is being championed around the UK for the 150th anniversary of the composer’s birth, and forms part of A Lakeland Journey – a Cumbria-wide celebration of his music curated by Lake District Summer Music.

Programme

Frank Bridge Fantasy Piano Quartet, H.94

Antonin Dvořák Piano Trio in F minor

Ralph Vaughan Williams Piano Quintet

UIMF disclaimer: Artists or programme can be subject to change, and where a headline performer with top billing cancels, we will endeavour to find a like-for-like replacement. Refunds will only be offered in the event of the concert itself being cancelled.
