Printmaking and the Urban Landscape - Talk / Demo
Tue 6 December 2016, 10:30 – 11:30 GMT
Join us for our latest 'Printmaker's Toolkit Session'. Cath Brooke is a Leeds-based printmaker inspired by urban and industrial landscapes, many of which are based on sketches around the Redcar area, the North and South Gare and the recently closed steelworks. Her prints capture the industrial structures that define the area and that make it a unique and fascinating place for an artist to work. Cath will talk about her working process with examples, and demonstrate inking and printing one of her images combining drypoint with monoprint.
These 1 hour morning sessions will focus on technique, practise and making, and will comprise of practical demonstrations and talks led by practising artists and printmakers. The sessions are intended to encourage, inspire, and generate ideas and conversation about printmaking, so don’t be afraid to ask questions! Both members and non-members are welcome to attend. If you are not a member, or indeed a printmaker, they can act as taster sessions to show you just what printmaking is all about. If you are a member, the sessions can offer valuable hints and tips to help further your printmaking practise, or introduce you to a new technique.
