During this workshop Katherine will demonstrate how she creates her imagery using simply constructed collagraph and block-print plates to dramatic effect and then you will have the opportunity to explore her processes under her guidance.
Katherine Jones is a fine art printmaker and painter living and working in London. She combines traditional forms of intaglio and relief print namely etching, collagraph and block-print to produce her distinctive images. Her prints demonstrate a range of techniques with translucent gradations of colour that convey atmosphere and light. Many of her prints glow with ochre and gold and have an almost translucent quality.
Katherine says: “I start off with a solid idea but struggle to keep that idea going. After a while, you have to trust the image and give up trying to hold on to it and let it go on its own. I normally draw a lot, draw onto the plates directly and each print goes through masses of stages. I work like a painter, in layers, and there may be 20 proofs before the image feels right.“
Her work is held in public collections worldwide including the V&A prints and drawings collection, The V&A National Art library, the House of Lords and Yale University Library, USA.
