Susie Spencer: Introduction to Screen Printing @ The Studio
Oct 26 @ 9:30 am – Oct 27 @ 4:00 pm
Susie Spencer: Introduction to Screen Printing @ The Studio

In this workshop we will create a simple two colour and three colour print on paper using a variety of techniques for combining colour and images, such as layering and reduction printing. You will have the opportunity to create stencils using paper, easy cut plastic and screen filler. Registration processes will be minimal which will allow for a free and intuitive printing process.

Materials will be provided for printing on paper but if you would like to print on fabric such as a fat quarter please bring that with you, material washed to remove any filler

Tara Axford: “ A Sense of Pace” Using a Gelli Plate + Mono Prints @ The Studio

Tara Axford: “ A Sense of Pace” Using a Gelli Plate + Mono Prints @ The Studio

How to really see where you are, and use it in your work.

Using found objects, patterns and textures we will explore how they reflect a sense of place and create a connection to our surroundings.

We will find, document, edit, print, collage and create. Using mono prints with a gelli plate, and found specimens, we will use mixed media to ‘zoom in’ on our location and work with that. By abstracting the essence of a place we’ll create something inspired by our location. So the viewer can also experience something they may have previously overlooked, with fresh eyes.

The workshop will incorporate the principles of design in artwork, fail safe tricks and techniques to explore composition.

Participants will create a ‘field notes’  for a sketchbook, artist book, and a series of prints and collage works.

What to expect: Inspired by our surroundings we will collect, edit, print & create. Discover new ways of seeing, creating pieces that resonate with a sense of place. We will discuss the process of editing our source material so as to find a starting point.This workshop will have you learning the basics of working with stencils, both natural and man-made. Students will create a variety of prints which explore layering acrylics to achieve unique works. Monoprints are perfect for producing textural, patterned prints, these are beautiful on their own or can be used to create collages, wrapping papers, gift cards, artist books. Endless options!
