Just in case there is any confusion – this is my own personal response to Double Elephant’s project Redefining Print. I am not wearing my “Double Elephant hat” here, this isn’t the official line, this is just a reflection on how it was for me.
International Printmaking Conference & Print Festival Scotland took place in Dundee 28th August – 1st September 2013
I was very lucky to be sent by Double Elephant Print Workshop to Dundee for IMPACT8 with my colleague Simon Ripley and our collaborator Josh Gaunt from Workshops n’ Docs. (more…)
A major event in 2012 was the creation of some demonstration videos with Double Elephant Print Workshop.
You can see them all HERE!
I did the demonstration for the Collagraph video. It took a WHOLE DAY! In true Blue Peter style I had prepared my project at various stages in its development so that I didn’t have to waste time waiting for paint to dry.
You can see a proof being pulled from the finished plate in the video. And here is one of the finished prints I made shortly after – when I had time to fuss about colours and add mono print plant material too.
To go with the Collagraph video is another short one of “Top Tops”.
Do take time to look at my colleagues videos for drypoint, mono print and relief print too.
1980 – First post school printmaking. During the Conservation of Prints & Drawings course I had to learn about, make and print the full range of print processes available to the ‘Old Masters’. Woodcut, Wood engraving, Etching (hard ground, soft ground and aquatint), Engraving, Lithography (plate and stone), and screenprint.
