Landscape Collage

We will use collage and textures to create interesting marks and features to make up a lively and expressive landscape

This is then painted in acrylic inks and paints using innovative mark making, over painting, layering and scratching back.

Louise will provide some photos for inspiration but please feel free to bring along your own inspiring images.

Stretched paper, paints, inks and papers and fabrics for collage will all be provided but please bring along your own pencils, paint brushes and some acrylic paints.



Felt Blossom Trees

We will paint with the vibrant colours of Marino felt. We will be looking at wet felting and needle pointing felting techniques and will aim to consider the application of embroidery to bring out detail in the final piece.

You may need something to inspire you but all other materials will be provided. Please bring a good full and if possible waterproof apron.



Vase of Flowers Collage

Various papers are painted and then collaged to make a pretty and vibrant bunch of flowers. Textures and gestures are combined with results that can only be achieved using this combination of painted papers and collage.

Collagraph Printing

COLLAGRAPHS- A collagraph print is similar to an etching, although the plate is usually made of materials that are much more vulnerable and so each plate will only print about 25 prints. The plate is made up of collage, a variety of materials which have been glued onto a firm plate which can be cardboard, hardboard or aluminium. The collage plate is inked using the intaglio method, leaving the recessions or indentations to hold the ink so that it will print when passed through the press with dampened paper.

The enjoyment of collagraph is that the work is fun, relaxed and very spontaneous. Students are given the opportunity to play and experiment with this lovely printing technique, the plate produced is beautiful in itself and the print is a delightful surprise and an unexpected pleasure.

The tools used are very minimal. Unlike etching there is no acids used. Louise will talk students through the various materials that can be used for the actual plate and provide a variety of materials that can be used to provide the textures from which to print.

The student will be shown the various mediums and tools used to mark make and how to combine these gestures in layers to form a print full of interesting and unusual painterly marks.

Each student can produce and then print from a plate within the full day workshop.

All materials are provided, but please bring along your own pencils.

Louise will provide some photos for inspiration but please feel free to bring along your own inspiring images.

   



Intaglio Dry Point Printing.

A no acid form of intaglio printing when only your imagination limits the possible marks you can achieve. Work can be traced or drawn directly onto the plate resulting in marks and lines that portray the sensitivity of your own hand.

Pools of glowing colours mix unexpectedly through the inking process to print delicate hues and lovely blends of colours.
