St Ives September Festival

This intensive short course led by practicing artist Rachael Kantaris will be stimulating, motivating and fun, the emphasis being on a creative approach and encouraging an experimental use of various combined printmaking techniques. We will be exploring several different methods of monoprinting including the rich colour over colour monoprints achieved with the press, and incorporating drypoint techniques, resulting in exciting multi-layered relief prints.

We will then concentrate on collagraph, a fantastic intaglio medium which combines line, colour and texture to produce prints of incredible subtlety and depth. Similar to etching in it’s method of printing, collagraph lends itself particularly well to colour inking and can incorporate very painterly techniques. The course is suitable for both complete beginners and experienced artists and all materials will be provided. Places limited to 10.
