|Leicester Print Workshop
|Date & Time
|Saturday 18th August
10.00am - 4.00pm.
Discover and expand the language of mark making through a sensory drawing-based workshop.
Participants will generate their own abstract vocabulary of symbols free from association through a series of perceptual exercises moving between serendipity, intuition, intention and memory.
These will be resolved as print-based impressions, improvisations and compositions using a combination of Monoprint and Etching.
