Experiments in Collagraphy

Colour, texture and composition are still the guiding principles this weekend but with a change of technique for the new group of students at BAC. We're printmaking with Laurie Rudling.

Several students are LOLs (Lauries Old Lags!) but many are new to this intriguing type of printing. We usually have a good mix of students and on this course the students range from complete beginners to professional printmakers. (see the 'BAC Link to Artists' on the side bar) A variety of textural papers and fabrics - such as scrim - are used to make printing blocks and careful inking with a limited palette gives a beautiful subtle range of colours.

Next year, 2010, Laurie will be back at BAC on March 28/29 for 'Explorations with Monoprinting' and for August Bank Holiday he will teach a three day course for 'Further Experiments in Collography' which will allow us to make larger prints and investigate more complex ideas and techniques. This course will also be suitable for beginners. We would encourage you book early to avoid disapointment.
