Workshops COMING UP

 

Sarah Hopkins |  Screenprinting with paper stencils

Saturday and Sunday | May 26 | 27.

Those of you who are familiar with her work will know that she has her own unique approach to designing for print, capitalising on cut and torn paper stencils to build up the design through coloured layers. No coating of screens, no exposures – just cutting and a lot of thought!

This is a very open, non technical approach enabling great flexibility as you go through the design process.

Nawr Yr Arwr \ Now The Hero

I first encountered Frank Brangwyn’s Empire Panels at a very young age during school speech days and I have been influenced by his monumental design, his drawing skills and exuberant colours ever since. This two day course will draw inspiration from the flora, fauna and people in these panels, working with a three-colour monotype technique, pioneered by Impressionists Degas and Monet, and given a contemporary spin by American printmaker Vinita Voogd. You will have two unique pieces, one full-colour and one “ghost”, using the highest quality inks and papers, reflecting the richness and diversity of these magnificent murals

Rose Davies has already made brief film of the commissioned work she has done for Nawr Yr Arwr / Now The Hero. This can be seen on her website

You can also find it on the Hay Festival programme linked to Marc Rees's Talk
We are staging an exhibition of work related to Marc Rees’s project Nawr Yr Arwr \ Now The Hero [https://www.nowthehero.wales/] Drawing upon an epic poem, some rejected paintings, and an intimate portrait of a serving Swansea soldier, Marc Rees’s bold production brings the stories of war to life with a counterpoint of peace and hope.
Work can be submitted for this exhibition in any print form and we are offering two workshops for members to work towards a finished print. This is an opportunity to work with other printmakers on this theme.
