Collagraph Printmaking Classes
Have you tried Printmaking? Have you thought about it, but felt a bit intimidated? Fear not! Printmaking is open to all, and is a super handy area for beginner artists to explore. Collagraph is a combination of collage and printing, and it’s a printmaking process which can absolutely be achieved at home!
I love landscapes, don’t you? Looking out onto an expansive vista, feeling the world stretching out from where you stand…it’s pretty inspiring. In creating my first landscape in collagraph, I found I could really invest myself in it. Crafting the landscape in your hands - it takes the view in a completely new direction!
Characters in Collagraph
If you are anything like me, you might have found the idea of collage daunting. So many textures and materials to choose from! But when I started to use collage in a more figurative way it became far more accessible to me. I hope this class helps you to explore printmaking and find out what kinds of collage bring you joy.
Drypoint & Monotype Printmaking Classes
Drypoint is a method of printmaking which has a grounding in drawing - except you draw with a pointy tool instead of a pencil. Its delicate, intentional nature means it is well-suited to creating smaller artworks…
Monotype printmaking is a method of printmaking with has a few variations, but essentially means the prints you get are one-of-a-kind.
In this class we combine the joys of miniature art with the satisfactions of drypoint printmaking, to create our own mindful design, drypoint plate and print. Whether you are a complete beginner to printmaking, or are simply exploring a fresh direction for your art, I hope you will find a little pocket of creative calm in this class.
Creative Play Classes
Art is all about experimenting and enjoying the process - let's enjoy this playground together!
Old artworks - which may have seemed to originally miss the mark - are great to revisit later on. They can become excellent playgrounds for creative bravery.
This class is about digging out our past unfinished or unloved artworks, and looking at them with fresh eyes. From stitching, to colouring and collaging, we will be exploring some easy ideas for re-invigorating our old artwork and broadening our creative possibilities.
