8 week course with Dyana Wells

Adults – Tuesdays – dates to be advised.

Printmaking is a rather messy, unpredictable and experimental undertaking.  The moments of ‘I have no idea how this will turn out’ are often followed by a ‘Wow, that is beautiful.’

In this course we will be exploring many different ways of making prints, some using a printing press, but mostly by hand using a brayer or the back of a spoon.

Printmaking is a way of creating a piece of art that is striking and elegant without needing years of practice.

Gelli-printing is a very easy way of creating stunning mono prints which can then be displayed on their own, or used for further projects. Stencils, found objects such as leaves, leaf skeletons and fabric are used to create stunning impressions. The prints can be layered, and ghosted to create depth and interest. Really the limit to what you can do is your imagination.
