During this masterclass we will explore several printing methods to inspire you to continue exploring for yourself. Methods will include block printing, mono printing and an alternative to lino printing. Dramatic results will be achieved by layering printing methods. You will learn the basic methods of printing, look at colour and surface texture within printmaking, make your own printing blocks in different styles and with different materials and explore printing on different surfaces.
Brenda Wood is a local artist with degrees in sculpture and printmaking. She worked in secondary school education for many years inspiring many A’level students to go onto degree level. Since then she has worked extensively with adults and young people in a variety of settings. Presently she is teaching sculpture workshops in stone from her studio in Allesley Village.
She holds strong beliefs about the value of drawing and how it is instrumental in informing a personal response.
