Printed Sketchbook Skills with Emma Taylor


Wednesday 17th July | 10:00am - 2:00pm

Printed Sketchbook Skills with Emma Taylor

Course outline:   Printed Sketchbook Skills!

Working in a sketchbook is a great place to experiment and try new approaches to art without the pressure of creating a masterpiece. It can be daunting starting a sketchbook but I will show you how to get started and how to gain confidence to develop your own style. We will be exploring varied printmaking techniques to create pages of backgrounds in a sketchbook which will follow your own theme or point of interest.

We will explore gelliprinting, monoprinting, press printing, lino and stamping/block printing to cover numerous pages to start you off on your journey.

Your sketchbook will become a fun and simple way of incorporating creative expression into everyday life and this workshop will inspire you to make time each day to be creative. 

This workshop does not require any specific artistic skills other than an open mind! You will need to bring a small sketchbook or I can supply a A5 homemade concertina book.

Costs: £55 per workshop.All materials and papers will be included in the price.

To secure a place please contact Emma Taylor by email or phone 07540191437
