Printmaking Workshops The studio sessions are intended for creatives that would like to try printmaking, (Linocut, Monoprints and etching) and for emerging and established artist that like working in groups and having access to a large press and print room. All standard equipment is provided for you to try your hand at printmaking or mixed media techniques. Great some inspiration and creative company while learning some new skills. Bring a sketch of an idea or have a look thought the many art books available. You will be introduced to the space and given a art pack with paper samples, lino and etching plates. I like to explain the papers and techniques that can be used. If you don't come with any ideas, I have many art reference books that you are welcome to get inspired by. First you will make a sketch of your idea, of which then needs to be transferred onto the plate. Then you will carve or scratch out the design on your plate. once you are finished I will explain how to use the large press, and any safety issues and how to store the wet images. Once the plate is ready to be printed, I will explain the inking up process, and we will ink and prepare the plate for pressing in the printing machine. Everyone gets to have several turns resulting in several finished pieces
