Taster session - printmaking by the sea

X

Description

1.5-hour taster session This is an opportunity to make your own original print en Plein Air! Be inspired by the views across Mounts Bay and or get creative with your imagination in a fast and easy Printmaking workshop. With so many print processes to choose from, Plein air Printmaking is suitable for all ages and abilities! Its a lot of fun too. Join Oliver in his studio garden, overlooking St Michael's Mount in Marazion Cornwall. He'll also be sharing his experience of using various printmaking processes en Plein Air. Many of these unique techniques include mono-printing techniques, which help to capture moment-by-moment effects right there and then, thus making each artist's proof into a unique original fine art print. You might think that you need to first be practiced at other art forms such as drawing and painting, but printmaking can be a very accessible process without needing to even know what you are doing :)! With the use of the mobile workshop facilities, we will be working directly in the open air, making and proofing images without leaving the view. You will be able to experiment with a number of Printmaking processes, such as engraving and drypoint, etching, woodblock and mono-printing techniques. Tuition is made available on an individual basis to further encourage your preferred approach. The cost of this course is £40 per person per 1.5-hour taster session. The longer sessions and full workshop days can be arranged. Please contact Oliver (via link above) for more information.
