Hi guys, I'm teaching another workshop in Bedford, this one's Collagraph and Drypoint, take a look at the details below:

Saturday 10th June : From 10am – 4.30pm

Tutored by Kevin Holdaway

Cost = £60.00 – includes all materials, tea/coffee & biscuits
(please note – lunch is not included, so please bring your own)

This day course we will be looking at the two intaglio processes of collagraphs and drypoint. One demonstrates a way in which you can incorporate textures into your printmaking and the other is very much a linear process.

Collagraphs: This process we will be making a textural print by applying basic surfaces to mount board incorporating a cut and peel method. Peeling away the surface and scoring into the plate. Adding carborundum and wood glue for the darkest areas and cellotape and glue for highlights. Then the finished plate will be sealed using shellac, dried, inked up and then printed.

Drypoint: This process we will be hand scoring designs onto various surfaces including traditional zinc and the more modern hard plastic. Using traditional tools including scrapers and burnishers we will prepare the plate while we are waiting for the collagraph blocks to dry.

We will be using an etching press, as with all intaglio processes, where the paper is softened in water then pushed into the line that has been made in the plates. We will go through the preparation, image making, inking up and printing of both the processes covered.

Waterbased Silkscreen Printing – Tutored by Kevin Holdaway

Sunday 19th February 2017

10am to 4.00pm  

Cost = £60.00

Location: Tabwood Ltd, Wood End Gallery, Wood End Lane, Pertenhall, Bedfordshire MK44 2AS

In this class you will be taught the basics of silkscreen printing using waterbased inks and pastels.

You will be shown how to set up the screen with a hinge system, mix acrylic paint with a specific printing medium, apply a design numerous ways, registration of your design accurately, print an edition of multi layered coloured prints (including your photographic design) and how to clean down quickly and efficiently with sponge and water.

Starting with the basic mechanics of screenprinting you will soon be making prints by the  monosilkscreen method, using paint directly on the surface of a screen. Then you will develop the process by introducing paper stencils and watercolour pastels. With the registration technique you will be able to either produce an edition of prints or use the day for experimentation. You would then finish off the day by printing a photographic* stencil combined with the earlier techniques instructed in the session. But you will end the day with good collection of prints, tips and resource info.

The class is suited for complete beginners or artists wishing to refresh their knowledge.

*(You will need to send me your photographic image at least a week prior to the lesson in order for it to be processed on the screen for the day)  

The workshop includes all materials, plus tea/coffee and biscuits, but please note: Lunch is not included.

TO BOOK please telephone: 01480 861915

"We are really pleased to have Kevin back with us following his sell-out talk in March. Kevin will show his incredible lino prints and teach you how to achieve similarly spectacular results from just one block of lino. Cutting your lino, inking, registering and overprinting, over the weekend you will get to print your own small edition in multi-colour and get tips from a master of his craft.
Of course we don’t expect you to get up to the level of Kevin’s printing with over 30 colours on large scale lino, but learning directly from an expert in reduction lino you will certainly get a good head start."
