Tuesday and Wednesday Jan 10 & 11 | SINGLE PLATE REDUCTIVE LINOCUT

2 day workshop | Max 6 students | 10.00 – 5.00
£70 Full/Keyholder member  |£80 Ordinary Member | £100  Non-member

This method uses one piece of lino to produce an edition of multicolour prints.
Colloquially known as the ‘suicide method’ because the accuracy of the registration of each successive colour printing is crucial.
Vinita will be teaching a new pin/tab registration system for the method. This totally eliminates the problematic "registration" issues that are associated with this technique. Her advanced students are making 20 - 30 colors per image with perfect registration for the entire edition!

All materials will be provided and you will be able to produce a small edition of finished prints

Thursday | January 12 | MONOTYPE technique with stencil, overprinting with ghost plates, and variations.

Max 8 students | 1 day workshop
£50 Full/Keyholder member | £55 Ordinary member | £70 Non-member

This is a chance to really play around with print using simple techniques but with rich and complex effects.
Students will create a collage (the size of their Plexiglas plate), cut stencils, print inked plate over, then use the “ghost imagery” left on the plate to overprint.
All materials will be provided

Friday January 13 | DRYPOINT

Max 8 students | 1 day workshop | 10.00 – 5.00
£50 Full/Keyholder member | £55 Ordinary member | £70 Non-member

Vinita will be bringing "clear carve plates" with her from America for this drypoint workshop. We haven’t experienced them here and they have the advantage of being able to place your drawing underneath the see-thru plate, carve, ink, wipe and print. An excellent technique for moving your drawings on to print stage.

All materials will be provided
