Four week course: Thursdays 28 Feb – 21 March 2019
ENROLMENT FORM Short Courses 2018-19
This four-week course is suitable for adults at all levels – from beginners to those wishing to extend their practice.
Unlike many media, screen-printing is enhanced by happy accidents and does not involve being able to draw realistically. However, it has huge scope for creating work ranging from graphic to painterly, and from representational to abstract.
Participants will first learn traditional methods of printing and registration with paper stencils to make bold, graphic forms. They will experiment with superimposing and combining colours, and as the course progresses they will be encouraged to experiment – for example, printing with found objects, and incorporating other media such as mono-printing, painting and collage.
At the end of the course, everyone will have a series of prints that demonstrate varied ways to portray their chosen themes or subjects.
Tutor Judith Devons is an artist specialising in screen-printing and ceramics. As well as creating her own work for exhibitions and commissions, she greatly values leading workshops for children and adults at all ability levels, including disabled people. See examples of work on her web site.
