Textural Monoprintwith Angela Lai Yen

A playful workshop for beginners. You'll make a range of instant one-off prints by experimenting with layering, textures from found materials, colour, shape and stencils... with stunning effect. You'll also print directly from rollers and use a range of mark-making tools. (N.B. printing onto fabric is not a part of this course.)

Drypointwith Wendy Batt

You'll draw an image into a plastic or metal plate and take one or more prints. You can add colour using paint or chine collée. This is a great way to make more than one image of a drawing, building up darks using line. The method does not use corrosive chemicals. You keep the plates so can print from them again (using the studio on on a day rate basis) if you wish. (Please bring a sketchbook and/or ideas for images with you.)

Linocut - Personal Project: Nature at its Bestwith Angela Lai Yen

For those with some experience of linocut (perhaps you've attended Angela's beginners' class?). The course starts with a structured half-day out looking at nature, your surroundings and pattern, researching and drawing images. Then three studio sessions to create a print using the medium in a way that works for you. For best results you'll want to do more at home between studio sessions as well. Angela will provide tutorials, teaching, demonstrations and guidance.
