Develop Your Rebel Printmaking Voice - 3 terms over 9 months
|Date & Time||4th October 2022 - 17th July 2023|
|Tutor||Sue Baker Kenton
A unique artist-led course combining theory, practice and independent work to explore an expanded notion of printmaking. You will be introduced to ideas surrounding the history of printed matter as part of human development and its intersection with other disciplines through various artist’s work and the role of the handmade print in a digital world. Sue will guide you through developing your own practice in a supportive and collective small group of artists, through reworking old prints and experimenting with colour, techniques, collage, sculptural forms and moving image.
This course is a great way to study under Sue in an immersive artistic environment and to learn multidisciplinary practical skills and the theory and histories which drive these. Ideal for those who want to develop their practice through process and ideas. Develop Your Voice is a hybrid course which runs for three terms.
Each term, you will receive three 3 hour online workshops, one full studio day at LPW and a one to one tutorial with Sue. Term 3 includes three full days in the studio, with an additional guest tutor and public event curated collectively by the group.
