Event description

Description

Tutor: Laney Birkhead

Date: Saturday and Sunday 11th and 12th November

Time: 10-5pm

Price: £95 price includes a delicious homemade lunch and materials

Explore a wide range of unusual grits and glues to make textured tactile printing plates on the first day.

Create interesting marks and textures and build up layers on your plates. These will be varnished and left to dry overnight.

The second day you will print colourful proofs of your plates using intaglio inking methods. You will learn how to ink up and wipe each plate and how to use the printing press.

You should be able to create several prints to take away with you and learn the basics of this fascinating method.

Suitable for adult beginners and improvers.

Please bring the following to your print workshop:

  • Old shirt/apron and indoor shoes suitable to print in therefore not slippers, sandals or open toed shoes
  • Small box of favourite basic drawing materials e.g. pen, pencil, rubber, scissors etc
  • Small sketchbook / notebook in which to make notes and observations
  • Minimum of 6 images (sketches / photos) you wish to work from. These can be your own primary images or secondary research images, as you are coming to do an intaglio course try to choose images with lots of texture and contrast in rather than just line
  • A small bag of flat found textures – e.g. papers, pressed leaves and petals feathers, fabrics embossed card etc,
  • A camera with which to record your creative journey (optional)
  • A3 folder or wallet to take your prints home in.
