Description

Exhibition:

3x3x3: Three Poets, Three Artists, Three Libraries

Lace

Tuesday 6 September to Sunday 9 October

Free

Take three poets, match them up with three artists, and the results are three very different books: Small Grass, a short collection of nature poems written from the viewpoint of grass; The Night Library, a love song to libraries, and Lace, a celebration of lace and the women who made it. Arnold Library Gallery is one of the three library galleries to be hosting work from 3x3x3, with an exhibition and workshops from Lace.


Art Workshop:

3x3x3: Lace, Printmaking Workshop with Elizabeth Clayman

Friday 30 September, 1 – 4pm

£35

Using the motif of lace as a starting point, this workshop will use simple printmaking techniques to create patterns. Manipulating ink on Perspex plates for monoprints and incising on soft board for relief prints, and then transferring the inked images onto paper, these two techniques will be explored using non-toxic printmaking inks. Each print can be made by either running it through a press, or by hand rubbing / burnishing the back of the sheet of paper. The resulting prints can range from bold images to ghostly impressions. This workshop is perfect for those who have never tried printmaking. The idea is to be experimental and do many prints. All materials provided.

Elizabeth Clayman grew up in South Carolina in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains spending her summers on Cape Cod. She has a BA in English from Mount Holyoke College and University College London, and an MA in Fine Art from the University of Pennsylvania. She worked in Archaeological museums in the US and the UK drawing artifacts for academic publications. She works in a variety of mediums and is influenced by natural forms, cellular structures, fragmentation and patterns. Her work has been exhibited in both the UK and US and has also been used in EU research publications. www.elizabethclayman.com
