Woodland inspired Monopinting with stencils

Tuesday 11th Feb 2014 / 17.30-20.30
Hamilton House Gallery/reception

Sophie Rae led a couple of workshops in the Print Shop, whilst it was open. Now if you missed the chance to get involved she is holding another one on Tuesday 11th. 

This is a workshop based on the theme of ancient woodland, where participants learn a unique printing technique, which is easy to do at home, without needing specific printing facilities or expensive materials. The process starts with a rough sketch/design. This design is then cut into stencils using a craft knife. Beautiful colours of ink are then mixed and applied with a durathene roller through the gaps in the stencils, also referred to as pochoir. 
You will experiment with layering the inks to achieve different textures and effects to create a woodland-inspired print which you can take home. 

You also have the choice to work your designs onto a set of five greetings cards. 

Its a three hour workshop, with all materials provided for £25. 

Its advisable to wear clothing you don't mind getting ink on, or bring an apron. 
If you have any woodland inspired imagery to jog your imagination on the day then please bring that. 

To book on you can pay securely over paypal, if you visit this blog.
