A workshop using drawings made together in the morning to produce simple mono prints in the afternoon. Drawing is the foundation for all my printmaking so I will begin the day by showing you some of my own work as an introduction.

In the morning we will use pencils of all kinds including coloured pencils and charcoal pencils to make drawings from a still life set up for you in the studio. Some people may want to bring in background elements by making quick sketches in the characterful surrounding streets of Saffron Walden.

After lunch we will make simple mono prints using our drawings as an inspiration and a starting point. We will use water based printing ink. I want to help each person to realise their own unique vision in the way that they realise their print. All abilities are welcome.

Wear old clothes and an apron for printing. We have a limited number of drawing boards so bring your own if you can. Materials will be supplied but do bring any suitable drawing materials or paper you might like to use in addition to those provided.
