Etching: Process & Practice Session
Join WYPW member Tom Ratcliffe for our August ‘Process & Practice’ session, (previously ‘Printmaker’s Toolkit Sessions’), focusing on etching. Tom’s work is influenced by the theoretical writings of the philosopher Michel Foucault and could be considered a ‘node within a network’: that is a confluence between different forms of representation, operating between conventional artistic genres through metaphor. The images hover between figuration and abstraction hinting at their origins and creating a universal response to the world.
These 1 hour morning sessions focus on technique, practice and making, and comprise of practical demonstrations and talks led by practicing artists and printmakers. The sessions are intended to encourage, inspire, and generate ideas and conversation around printmaking, so don’t be afraid to ask questions! Both members and non-members are welcome to attend. If you are not a member, or indeed a printmaker, they can act as taster sessions to show you just what printmaking is all about. If you are a member, the sessions can offer valuable hints and tips to help further your printmaking practice, or introduce you to a new technique.
All welcome! From those who have never done any printmaking before to experienced printmakers.
We hope that these sessions will inspire you to learn more about printmaking, or to develop your work in a new area of print. We have a range of courses for all levels, so why not have a look to see what else we have coming up? If you already have some experience of printmaking and would like to use our specialist printmaking facilities, then why not sign up for membership?
