Mapping Our Environment

Location Leicester Print Workshop
Date & Time Saturday 19th & Saturday 26th October
10.00am - 1.00pm
Tutor  Peter Clayton

Take part in a collaborative project to find visual potential in over-looked, passed-by and taken-for-granted aspects of our environment. Using basic monoprinting techniques we will collect material from surfaces around the Print Studio environment to create a single communal collage which will then be divided up between participants in the form of small books.

Course Structure

Day One

  • Introduction to project – inspiration and ideas
  • Demonstration of how to take monoprints from surfaces
  • Suggestions of places to explore within the workshop (and outdoors weather permitting)
  • Collect prints from surfaces

Day Two

Collectively, with advice and guidance, cut up and assemble prints taken on week one. The format will be in the form of a scroll/panorama.


Sometime after the final picture has been made the tutor will cut up the picture and create small artists’ books one of each will then be posted out to participants.
