Unusual courses

Lost news stories…

A little while ago I had another round of technological issues with my website. I am only semiliterate as far as computer stuff is concerned and I needed help to sort out some wed issues that were well beyond my capabilities. While I am relieved that things are back to “normal” I have actually lost a few news stories that were here on this page L

I can’t bear the thought of re-writing and working to make things fit nicely on the page and I’ve realised that thought has been blocking me for doing much needed up-date here.

So – here is just a small mention of what was lost, and then I can get on with up-to-date news!

New & Unusual courses at Double Elephant –

Printmaking is a colaboration between the artist and the process

One I explored was about creating your own chine collé. This facebook post probably tell you all you need to know.

And this set of photos on Instagram will show you the results of some of my experiments.

 

One of the courses that took off really well was the Practical Colour Mixing for printmakers. This set of photos on Instagram was taken on the first day and the workshop had been repeated since.

I was also pleased with how the Multi-plate intaglio went and will definitely to that again.

 

Alternatives to etching

Alternatives to etching is something I would like to explore more. There is definitely interest in this.

 

Meanwhile some of the half day workshops aimed at complete beginners are now underway at Double Elephant. These are run by my colleagues George Baron and Catherine Cartwright.

See Double Elephant’s website for more information about courses.

Through my artwork I look to say something about the environment - explore how we interact, use, abuse and collaborate with the natural world around us. This has taken me to increasingly focus on the small ubiquitous and often reviled weeds and bugs that form the foundation and engine-room of ecosystems. I use a wide range of printmaking techniques – both traditional and innovative, often creating complex one off prints. ****** Co-founder and director of Double Elephant Print Workshop since 1997.
