Mapping Our Environment
|Leicester Print Workshop
|Date & Time
Saturday 19th & Saturday 26th October
10.00am - 1.00pm
A great chance to work with LPW artist Peter Clayton over two morning taster sessions, to find visual potential and inspiration in over-looked, passed-by and taken-for-granted aspects of the environment.
Using monoprinting techniques you will collect material from surfaces around the Print Studio to make your own work and contribute to a group collage which will then be made into small books for each participant.
This is a unique opportunity to develop your printmaking skills, whilst getting a glimpse of another artists way of working.
Discussion of inspiration and ideas, followed by a demonstration of monoprinting before printing and experimenting.
Reflecting on the prints produced on day one, continue to develop your ideas and produce a selection of unique prints. As a group, select, cut up and assemble the prints produced on day one.
The tutor will then create a small artists' book for each participant using the collage produced on day two.
