An Introduction into Printmaking: Part 1

Ref: C3533435

On this course you will be encouraged to be open to your own creativity, along the way you will also learn some skills and techniques. We will be using different materials and printing techniques such as drawing in, drawing out, resist and collage printing. You will also gain insight into artists’ work. There is a real excitement and liberation in not quite knowing exactly what you have created until you reveal your print allowing you to see it with fresh eyes. ABOUT YOUR TUTOR: Stella is a committed and passionate artist, sculptor and teacher. As a practising artist for over 25 years, Stella has exhibited extensively, created art commissions and been an artist in residence. She strongly believes in using your individual voice to connect inwardly and to communicate with the outer world. As a teacher, Stella encourages experimentation of techniques, materials and ideas to support self-expression in a positive and nurturing environment.
