Rose Davies | Monotype Workshop |

Saturday and Sunday | August 11th and 12th


Nawr Yr Arwr \ Now The Hero

I first encountered Frank Brangwyn’s Empire Panels at a very young age during school speech days and I have been influenced by his monumental design, his drawing skills and exuberant colours ever since. This two day course will draw inspiration from the flora, fauna and people in these panels, working with a three-colour monotype technique, pioneered by Impressionists Degas and Monet, and given a contemporary spin by American printmaker Vinita Voogd. You will have two unique pieces, one full-colour and one “ghost”, using the highest quality inks and papers, reflecting the richness and diversity of these magnificent murals

Rose Davies has already made brief film of the commissioned work she has done for Nawr Yr Arwr / Now The Hero. This can be seen on her website Man Child
