A five-day workshop: cost £315. Please book using the Eventbrite link below or contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
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.
