Our January Toolkit session runs alongside our exhibition of work by Artists@WYPW – our multi-talented group of studio holders, of which Clare Grace is one. The exhibition is based on collaboration and exchange of skills and ideas, focusing on simple methods of printmaking. In this session, Clare will be talking about and demonstrating how she uses the screen drawing fluid method. This technique involves drawing and painting directly onto a blank silkscreen to create positive marks which can then be printed from. It is an alternative to the widely-used photo-exposure technique and can be used to great effect.
These 1 hour morning sessions will focus on technique, practise and making, and will comprise of practical demonstrations and talks led by practising artists and printmakers. The sessions are intended to encourage, inspire, and generate ideas and conversation about 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 practise, or introduce you to a new technique.
Clare Grace is a surface pattern/printed textile designer and printmaker based at WYPW.
