Event description

Description

This session has been postponed and we are not taking bookings until a new date is agreed, please contact backlanewest@gmail.com if you are interested in taking a place and we'll let you know when the new date has been confirmed.

Back Lane West is partnering up with some of Cornwall’s most exciting artists and makers to bring you artist intensives, introducing you to some of the resources available in the county, helping to build on your current practice and find contemporary ways of using traditional skills.

Join Dena O’Brien and Ella Brett at Kiwi Print Studio for a day of emulsion screen printing using your own practice as a starting point.

During the session you will have time to produce an edition of screen prints from drawings and using mark making techniques. You are invited to bring ideas and images from your own practice to the session to base your design around. These could take any form, from; landscapes and architecture to forms, shape, pattern, and words.

The session will begin with drawing and mark making using ‘true grain’, which is a film you can make marks directly onto and will then be exposed onto the screens. Kiwi have a wide range of materials including, pens, inks, china marker, graphite sticks to use for experimental mark making, creating diverse textures and layers. You will be supported to consider the possibilities for your composition as a screen print, with the potential for printing your design twice in two separate colours.

The cost of the workshop will be £70.

Designs can be kept on the screen for a few weeks and participants are invited to come back and use the studio's open access scheme to further their work, for £7 an hour or £40 a day

This workshop is specifically for artists with an ongoing practice.
