About this Event

Printmaking with Susie Wilson

Printmaking is an exciting discipline as it allows a variety of responses from delicate, linear drawing to bold, expressive mark making. Over the week Susie Wilson will introduce monotype, collagraph, and dry point, inspired by initial drawings made in the surrounding landscape of Findhorn.

Working on various scale, students will be encouraged to look at colour and mark making and will be shown ways to translate their ideas into print using multiple plates. The work of Wilhelmina Barns-Graham, Ben Nicholson, Ivon Hitchens and contemporary printmakers such as Katherine Jones will be looked at and by the end of the week students will leave with a set of prints.

All necessary materials will be provided and light lunches and refreshments will be available. Please notify us at time of booking if you have any dietary requirements.

Note the 10% Early-Bird discount for payments made before the end of February!

Susie has taught Printmaking and Artists' Books at the School since 2011 and teaches artists' books and bookbinding at the University of Edinburgh Centre for Open Learning.

She was awarded the Visual Arts Scotland 2014 Nancy Graham Memorial Book Prize and the 2015 Sally Schofield Memorial Prize, and was artist in residence at Edinburgh College of Art Library in 2016.
