With Jo Hollier
15 September 2019
Go with the flow, push the boundaries and develop confidence with texture, colour and pattern in print. This action-packed workshop led by local printmaker Jo Hollier provides an introduction to some simple but exciting printmaking methods which will allow you to explore, develop and satisfy your creative urges. This workshop will give you the chance to print with textures, stencils, plants, thread and string, as you build up image-making skills through the use of simple mono-printing methods on gelatin plates using non-toxic waterbased inks and paints.
