The sun was shinning and participants were keen to crack on with their individual projects and ideas. With a brief introduction to artist’s books and techniques from Theresa, it was on to demonstrating a whole range of simple printmaking techniques and ideas. The plan was to experiment, try out ideas and if needed, design a specific book working on a one-to-one with Theresa.
Using good quality water based inks from Graphic Chemical, the prints soon dried in the afternoon sun, ready to be stitched, folded and glued into a whole series of books, with participants making 5 pieces of work in an hour and a half!
There are a couple of places left on the next one day workshop, August 18th, 10-4pm 36 Lime Street. If you can’t make that date why not pop down to the Ouseburn on 22nd July and have a go at making your own Ouseburn print based on the plants growing in the valley and enjoy the Ousebrun Festival while you are at it! Exhibiting in the gallery will be a collaborative project with Theresa Easton & Inchio`stro (Milan based small publishing house) who will be on hand, making new work and talking to visitors.
