Tutor: Gillian Tyler
To complement our summer exhibition ‘Frogs, Bears and Unicorns: The Art of Children’s Illustrations’, we’re really excited to welcome illustrator and WYPW member Gillian Tyler for our August Printmaker’s Toolkit Session. During the last year Gillian has been exploring the technique of wood engraving to create beautiful, delicate, enchanting prints. Come and join her for an insight into how she creates her images, her inspiration, and a demonstration of the wood engraving process.
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.
