Event description

Description

This creative course presents a unique and exciting opportunity to visit a state of the art papermaking workshop in the centre of Glasgow and study with master papermaker, Alison Newman and expert printmaker / artist Elspeth Lamb. On the first day of this weekend workshop, you will make a fusion of stencilled and pulp painted sheets with graffiti -like marks and textures to form the printing base for further application of cut and inked relief printed blocks, which will be developed through the second day.

During the course, participants will make stencilled, painterly images using heavily beaten coloured pulps which emulate paint when applied to newly formed pulp sheets. The paper is then pressed and allowed to dry overnight and then printed in relief from a printing block, using a small press to create vibrant, colourful images. When the pulp is formed into sheets at the start of the project and colour is applied to the surface, the paper becomes the image itself. The next stage is to cut, ink and print a block to complement this image, the effect of which creates a strong visual tension between the layers with the introduction of a new compositional element.

Participants should come to the workshop with an image / images which can be easily translated and made into simple stencils. Also, you should bring a key drawing (A4 in size) to print over your prepared pulp sheet. Themes such as landscape, seascape, botanical images are a suggestion, however we can look at other themes you may wish to pursue. As we will be working to an A4 format the images should be kept relatively simple.

To summarise, on day 1 you will create your layered, collaged paper sheets. On day 2 you will cut an image from a lino block which will be printed over the top of your prepared paper sheet, pulling your design together visually. Taught by expert printmaker / artist Elspeth Lamb in combination with Alison Newman @ PULP: Paper Arts Workshop. Both are experienced tutors and have visited and studied with masters in Japan.

Limited spaces available and suitable for all levels. Beginners are most welcome.
