A Sense of Place

Drawing into Print

Katherine Anteney

Feb 28th/1st March

10.00am – 4.00pm

No experience of Lino cutting in necessary

This workshop will take you through the process of drawing for printmaking, and progressing from initial drawing exercises through to a finished 2 colour linocut.

To tie in with the theme of A Sense of Place we will be drawing from still life compositions made up of objects that hold a special place in our lives, or evoke memories. These you can abstract and overlap to end up with finished prints that merely suggest their forms through shape and colour. Or you can work on a more figurative approach
