About the Course

In this fun and inspiring 2 day workshop you will learn a number of monoprint and collagraph print techniques on paper and/or fabric. You can work from some of your own images (photos and/or drawings) or from some of mine. Emphasis is on experimenting to achieve a range of visual effects.

By the end of the day you will have:

- Learnt about materials and equipment required for monoprinting and collagraph printing
- Studied a range of examples for inspiration and understanding
- Observed a number of demonstrations for inspiration and understanding
- Created a set of printed images to take home with you
- Understood health and safety issues when monoprinting
- Eaten a lot of home made (sometimes home grown!) food
- Received a set of technical handouts to support your day's learning

The workshop is run for groups of 2 people on 2 days negotiated with me (can be weekdays or weekend) and is held in my garden studio close to Richmond Park and Kingston town centre. The cost for the 2 day workshop is £105 each or if you want to do the course on your own it will cost £190.

Although new to advertising my courses on Craft Courses, I have 26 years experience teaching art, textiles and printmaking in further and adult education, in colleges and privately too, so you can be certain of well structured, well paced and inspiring teaching and learning.

I have been a practising artist and designer for 30 years, exhibiting nationwide and working commercially within the filed of illustration and textiles.

The cost includes all materials, refreshments and lunch on both days.

I found Ruth's two day print monograph and collagraph course completely inspiring and I can’t remember a time when I’ve completely lost myself in such an enjoyable learning experience. I came away feeling hugely energised and enthused about learning more.

Ruth is a fantastic teacher - the course was really well structured and she strikes a perfect combination of discipline and freedom. It was a real pleasure to learn some new skillsMaggie in such a welcoming environment whilst being offered endless slices of delicious chocolate crunch!

I undertook Ruth’s two day course recently and thoroughly enjoyed it. Would love to do it again!
Ruth is a great teacher; she encourages creativity, experimentation and once techniques have been explained she allows students to follow their own ideas.
The work created on the first day can be incorporated into the second day and there’s plenty of opportunity to create a substantial amount of art work.
She was also an excellent host offering regular refreshments, home made fridge cake and a delicious variety of fresh salads, cheese and bread for lunch.
Highly recommend.
