Those of you who are familiar with her work will know that she has her own unique approach to designing for print, capitalising on cut and torn paper stencils to build up the design through coloured layers. No coating of screens, no exposures – just cutting and a lot of thought!
This is a very open, non technical approach enabling great flexibility as you go through the design process.

We are liaising with Swansea Museum Stores to access items from their collection not usually available to the public. They have a very large number of items from the old Swansea Natural History Museum in store. Drawers and drawers of butterflies, moths ,insects etc as well as a huge range of taxidermy. We have in the past gone to the stores to do drawing days from their amazing eclectic collection. In view of the fragility of the items this time we are using the education room at Swansea Museum.
We have chosen to use a selection of small birds from their taxidermy collection. These will be mounted on small polystyrene blocks as they cannot be handled directly. This an opportunity to develop some great images.
Kelly's expertise is developing your drawings for screenprint. Even if you are not doing the screenprinting course with Kelly on the next day, this is an inspirational course into how to use your first hand material into print using layers of colour, which can be applied to a range of print processes.
If you are not interested in drawing the bird collection there is a wealth of interesting material in the museumfor you to choose from.
Swansea Museum would also be interested in art work which promotes their collection so it will be interesting to see what we can develop from this workshop. This might be cards for sale in the shop or an exhibition of work.

There are still places on this workshop. Enjoy a full day of drawing in the Museum



Creating Artist Postcard sets with Kelly Stewart
Screenprinting

This 2 day workshop will show you how to create a series of A6 postcards or mini prints via the screenprinting process. There will be an additional, optional preliminary drawing day where students will be drawing on location. These drawings will then be photocopied, enlarged/reduced/ cropped etc to create a series of A6 layouts in preparation for a 4 colour print. Those who won’t be attending the drawing day can bring material they are working on or would like to explore throughout the workshop.

We will create colour separations and expose them onto the screen. The final day will be screenprinting the designs/drawings onto A6 card and or paper in a range of colours.

There is still a place left on this course.

Students will receive a high quality A6 box to keep their postcards in
