10.00am - 1.00pm
Sue Baker Kenton
This workshop is part of the Forward Broadcast Exhibition by Sue Baker Kenton currently showing at Leicester Print Workshop.
This course begins with an introduction to how artists working with woodcut have historically used the portrait form and the contextual influences behind these works. With guidance you will then design, cut and handprint your own self portrait. To make the most of this course its advisable to set aside some ‘cutting’ time between the sessions.
About the Tutor
Sue Baker Kenton is a visual artist whose work is rooted in observational drawing. Her images evolve over time in a considered and reflective way, echoed by the processes in which they are rendered: primarily etching and lithography.
Sue is the specialist printmaking tutor for the UAL Foundation Diploma in Art and Design.
