Week 2:

21 August - Monotypes with Gelli Plates
with Heather Conyers
Discover the joy of making monotypes, the most painterly form of printmaking. Each print will be unique! For this workshop, participants will use gelatin plates as a printing surface. Inked images will transfer beautifully from the smooth gelatin surface onto paper. There will be a lot of experimentation with stencils, layering and a variety of media. The result will be a rich vocabulary of mark making with transparent and opaque images.

22 August - Screenprinting
with Tamsin Wildy
Explore the basics of screen-printing, including preparing and exposing a screen. Each participant will create individual artworks that will be printed onto tote bags and paper. Participants are welcome to bring their own t-shirts to print onto as well.

23 August - Collage
with Tamsin Wildy
What is collage? How do we read images? Can we change the way we look at everyday images and create new landscapes, adverts or even creatures? Through this workshop we will create a series of images using found materials. These could be from old magazines, envelopes and any other everyday materials we’re surrounded by.

24 August - Casting and Sculpture
with Tamsin Wildy
Not only will the participants learn how to make molds to create a cast of objects (or even their own hands!) but they will also be creating a self supporting sculpture piece using cardboard, ModRoc and an array of materials to take away at the end of the workshop.

25 August - Dry Point Etching with Tamsin Wildy
Using the traditional method of dry point etching, the students will create a plate, which can then be printed multiple times. This is a technique similar to etching but without the use of acids. Although the image is always the same, the nature of print will mean that each version is unique and distinct in some way.
