Description

FIRST WEDNESDAYS - Join us once a month for 'Life Drawing with a twist' !

Working directly from the life model, and exploring a different printmaking technique each month, you will create painterly monoprints which capture form, texture and atmosphere.

Working in this way will free up your drawing technique, allow you to discover textures and accidental mark-making which you can utilise in your drawing, and. at the same time, teach you a variety of printmaking methods which can be practised at home with a minimum of equipment.

For the first class we worked with oil based ink, rolled out onto a plate, worked into with rags, cotton buds, scrapers etc, drawn into and transferred onto paper. The next session, on 8th January 2020, will explore monoprinting using a silkscreen. We will have a colourful set-up so you can enjoy painting with ready mixed screen printing inks directly onto a blank silkscreen and then pulling individual prints through onto paper. We will demonstrate various ways of working at the beginning and then you will be able to work at your own pace with help and guidance throughout. The model will be available for the whole 2 hours and we will have a mixture of short and long poses.

This will be a regular monthly class and in future classes we will explore mono screenprinting; lino cutting and printing; and drypoint etching, all whilst working directly from the life model.

All materials included. Please wear something that you don't mind getting inky.

We can offer a discount on group bookings of 4 people or more, and also if you want to book onto 3 or more classes in advance - please email us directly on website@essexprintstudio.co.uk


NB - THERE WILL BE NO CLASS ON 1st JANUARY 2020 - it will be moved to the 8th Jan.
