Workshop

A day of printmaking at The Folk House - 'Monoprinting with Stencils' with Sophie Rae

Sat, 09/08/2014

Sophie Rae’s studio desk is often covered with inky stencils and rollers these days as she is often found cycling across Bristol to deliver her fun, hands on printmaking workshops. ‘Monoprinting with Stencils’ would be the best way to describe them.

Her next workshop is at THE FOLK HOUSE on SATURDAY 9TH AUGUST, from 10:00 – 16:00 with an hour lunch break and its only £28 for the whole day.

You will have fun with durathene rollers, using them to apply vivid ink through paper stencils. This workshop will allow you to experiment with the possibilities of the materials and learn how to apply them in building up your own print on greetings cards and bookmarks, which will be supplied. You are welcome to bring along other flat paper products to apply this new technique to, which can easily be done at home without the need of printmaking facilities. A relaxed and open day of learning a new skill and finding ways of tailoring the materials to your ideas, with my help and advice along the way. This process requires little pre planning and more learning as you go, with time to make happy accidents. Participants will be taught how to build up their image gradually, and be able to experiment by adding ink, stepping back, considering their piece, adding more, and evaluating as they go along. Suitable for beginners.

Materials list:

You will need to bring an apron or wear clothes you don't mind getting dirty/inky. They should also bring some inspiration for greetings card designs, e.g. magazine pictures or books or photos.
