Day Course – Introduction to relief printing May 18th

Steeple Arts Centre – in Fife, Scotland.

Saturday May 18th        10am- 4pm

A one day introductory  relief printing course with the opportunity to use a flatbed printing press is being planned in April/May, dates to be confirmed. We will be experimenting with a wide selection of materials playing with different techniques, colour combinations and papers. Each student will create a series of three exciting prints by the end of the day.

The course will be taught by Artist Julia Barton. Julia specialises in relief printing often using plant materials and sculptural fabrics, a selection of her prints can be viewed on this blog.

Equipment will be provided. Students will be asked to bring their own workshop aprons. The course will take place between 10am -4pm. The course fee is £60 for the day, with a small charge for paper and ink of £5 per student.

Course numbers are limited to ensure a good learning experience. Minimum numbers are required for the course to run so it is helpful if students can book their place early.

Free taster session will be held at the Steeple Arts Centre  on Thursday  21st of March at 3-4pm

Artist Julia Barton will demonstrate and explain relief printing techniques. She will share her passion for printing directly from materials such fabric, mesh and plants to create intriguing and exquisite prints on a variety of papers. You will be welcome to select materials with which to compose and print a simple bookmark to take away using a flatbed roller press. She hopes you too will be excited by the results and want to join her day course later in the spring.
