I will introduce you to techniques of transferring photographic images onto varied surfaces.

We will use gesso, acrylic medium and paints, collage, monoprints, found papers and textures to build up semi abstract experiments on paper, wood, slate and canvas.

We will be learning how to create aesthetic compositions, sensitive colour combinations and beautiful pieces that are individual to you.

 

You may wish to bring in your own photocopiesof photographs to use. You could include photographs of plants or faces that are personal to you. I will have a collection of varied themes to use too. Any images must be photocopies to transfer.

About Emma Taylor

 

She studied Fine Art in Cardiff at the University of Wales in the early 90s with one foot in the painting studios but gravitating to the warmth of the printmaking studios. Her work embodies the two disciplines with collagraphs produced with paint, card and carborundum and cut into integrate intaglio and relief printmaking.

Emma has worked as an Art teacher for many years with a focus on GCSE and A Level in a highly successful Art department in Sussex and held the position of Head Of Art for five years before leaving to focus on her family and printmaking.

Her wealth of experience and expertise in education has inspired countless students and they, in turn, have opened her eyes to the joys of returning to her own creativity.

      Wonderful garden well worth a visit. Great variety of plants showing so many ways of portraying a garden layout. Must comment on the great tea and cakes selection, our dog loved the doggy ice cream!

      Beautifully planted area, in which you are encouraged to walk along paths between the plants so can be completely surrounded by foliage - a lovely effect.
