With our Summer School now over and hardly a chance to catch breath we are delighted to announce the Winter programme of courses running from 30th October 2016 through to 22nd January 2017. It has already been a busy year for us, but we are not resting on our laurels. We have once again pulled out the stops to be able to bring you new workshops and special guest tutors.
This time around we are really excited to bring in Xtina Lamb from Medway Fine Printmakers in Rochester, Kent bringing with her her amazing collection of Gocco and Thermofax printing machines for a one-off special weekend course. We are also really lucky to have Jason Hicklin with us in January to share his incredible knowledge and enthusiasm for etching. Trained by Norman Ackroyd and in fact one of his master printers Jason is a very successful artist/printmaker who is represented by Eames Fine Art and The Beardsmore Gallery in London.
We also bring you Xylographica, or Block Books for the first time with Olly Flude showing how to cut text and image from the same block incorporating text within the composition and to compose and print a small book. Set up to coincide with The Paul Peter Piech exhibition at The People’s History Museum we are really pleased to offer 6 evenings of insightful illustration.
For the first time also we have scheduled an Introduction to Screen (on Friday evenings), and Level 2 Screenprinting (on Wednesday evenings), and for those really adventurous souls we bring you CMYK Colour Separation Screenprinting with Andy Magee.
All this ans lots more besides including A Taste of Letterpress, Monoprint, Drypoint, Collagraph and Japanese Book & Box Making. It’s a veritable feast!
