Sorry This Class Is Full – A Waiting List Is Available Though
This print based mixed media class explores a variety of interventions on paper and fabric towards creating a collection of layered surfaces, textures and experimental samples. Printmaking techniques that lend themselves towards abstract and painterly effects will be explored through mono, rust and offset printing. Resulting prints can be integrated with solar printmaking which is an accessible process capable of producing detailed graphic and text plates. Further interventions such as stitching , piercing, cutting, folding and encaustic (wax) can then be applied. Notions of reinterpreting traditional methods and the artist as an inventor will be stressed to encourage an open-ended approach to pursuing your vision. We’ll make a simple pamphlet stitch mini journal but as the course progresses individuals can select and develop their favourite processes towards creating a more resolved outcome such as a journal, collage, paper jewellery or object/s, etc.
The course is suitable for beginners to advanced makers. The only requirement is that you are asked to consider a topic or theme that you would like to focus on over the week. Alongside the core course there will be some short fun activities to help push the boundaries of your art.
Dunedin artist Lynn Taylor is interested in researching historical and nautical themes with a printmaker’s sensibility. She works in a mixed media way across different mediums, finding that through processing, printing and layering images things that lurk under the surface are revealed. In two parallel streams she works as a visual artist and an arts facilitator, with much of her work linked with residencies and a focus on encouraging creativity and developing art integration with specific communities.
