Exploring Relief Printmaking Using Wood, Lino and Cardboard with Jane Stobart and Mustafa Sidki
24th November 2018 @ 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM GMT£130
Following their highly successful ‘Weekend Woodcut for All’ courses, artists Jane Stobart RE and Mustafa Sidki are returning to Ochre once again to share their extensive knowledge of relief printmaking. On this weekend course they will expand the substrates used to make the relief plates, bringing lino and cardboard into the mix.
Arriving at the course with some preparatory work would be an advantage, but a theme will be available if you prefer it. Printing without a press will be demonstrated in addition to using Ochre’s Hunter Penrose etching press.
With two tutors on hand, it will be an intensive weekend of preparing plates with the opportunity of sampling a variety of suitable papers and exploring different inking and printing methods along the way. In addition, the use of cutting tools will be discussed and you will be shown how to keep these sharp and in tip top condition.
At the end of the weekend, you will leave with a variety of unique and beautiful prints.
Suitable for those wishing to begin or advance their skills and concepts, using many possibilities attainable via relief printmaking.
Materials are provided on the course with extra paper/blocks available to purchase
