Follow On Print - Screenprinting
|Leicester Print Workshop
|Date & Time
|Wednesday 17th + 24th July 6 - 9pm
|Beginner / Intermediate
Extend your knowledge of basic screenprinting- perfect if you have done our popular Intro to Print course, this two week course extends your understanding of the process of this planographic printmaking technique. A great refresher for those who already work with screen, with an artist tutor who is an expert in this process. You will look at creating both hand drawn, mark making and photographic images and confidently reproducing them in a professional studio setting.
Week One - You will be introduced to photographic screen printing - reproducing a photograph onto a screen and printing through mesh to create a small edition on paper. Best practice will be shared such as dealing with dry screens, mixing ink, flooding screens and angle and pressure of pull.
Week Two - Moving on to mark making you will be given a range of materials to create a variety of marks both drawn and painterly which you will then print onto paper and combine in a variety of ways to create layered and colourful prints.
About the Tutor
I am an artist and printmaker based in Leicester, in the heart of the East Midlands. Since graduating from a Fine Art Degree in 1984 and being a member of the Leicester Society of Artists, I have been working as a professional printmaker producing work for my portfolio, commercial illustrations and private commissions. Over the past 35 years I have also been involved in working with museums, art collections and a number of Art Residencies and I am thrilled to have had the opportunity to regularly exhibit work with fellow artists, both locally and nationally throughout the UK.
