Status:

Monday, 23 July 2018 to Friday, 27 July 2018

Printmaking entails many innovative techniques and processes, some of which are to
be explored during this course. With the unique natural setting of Farrera, deep in the
Catalan Pyrenees as our backdrop, we will use the landscape as inspiration to create
images with a focus on expressive and spontaneous gesture. The course is designed
for those both with or without previous experience and visual artists in general who
want to expand and enrich their knowledge of new techniques.

This course will provide participants with an introduction to the following techniques:
Monotype – drawn, additive, subtractive, use of textures, stencilling, watercolour (new this year)
Additive Techniques – Carborundum and Collagraph

Participants will also gain understanding and experience of aspects directly related to
the printmaking process including:
• papers, materials, tools
• use of non-toxic inks
• printing by hand and using the press
• registration, care and handling of graphic works.
