Monoprinting onto Khadi Papers
|Location||Leicester Print Workshop|
|Date & Time||Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th June 2023
10.00am - 4.00pm
Suman will use her printmaking and poetry practice to explore how journeys can manifest as images. Using colours which hold significance to participants, on day one you will learn how to monoprint your designs using Khadi paper from India and on day two you will transform your prints into concertina sketchbooks and 3D forms, further embellishing them with inks and stitches to produce beautiful 3d printed bookforms.
About the tutor
This led to Suman’s current work on the migrant crisis and its roots. These issues can be painful to think about but she believes that artists are in a unique position to act as agents for change by provoking conversations through their work.
Suman makes abstract work, stemming from her own response but which can be interpreted by the viewer from their own perspective.
