Printmaking: ‘One Off’ Monoprints for Cards & Collage with Laney Birkhead
Sun 3 September 2017, 14:00 – 17:00 BST
Create a series of one off prints using a variety of Monoprinting methods using hand burnishing and an etching press. Learn about printmaking inks, rollers and plates, printing papers and stencils, as well as how to combine different negative and positive image making methods. You will create a variety of rich textures and layers, which can be used for future collage projects, cards or small pictures. This is an ideal workshop for beginners helping you to loosen up with your image making and enjoy being playful with the materials. All tools and materials will be provided.
We will sustain you with tea & coffee, and some very gorgeous cake from That Old Chestnut, a friendly Leeds-based bakery that uses organic ingredients 100% free from animal products. Please bring a packed lunch with you - local options are limited.
Skelton Grange is a beautiful, light eco-building set in a nature reserve with ponds, meadows, woodland, vegetable garden & fruit orchard. If the weather is inviting, you are very welcome to enjoy your lunch or cup of tea outdoors and wander...
You can see examples of Laney's beautiful work on her website.
All proceeds will go to support the great charitable work of The Conservation Volunteers at Skelton Grange Environment Centre, which you can read more about on our website .
