DUKESFIELD IN PRINT
An invitation for all artists, beginners and experienced, to join local printmaker Jan Baxandall for free workshops.
We are holding two half-day workshops and a full day one, to explore through various simple printing techniques, images and ideas inspired by the Dukesfield Smelters and Carriers project. It is hoped that some participants will make their work available to promote and support of the project.
WORKSHOP 1: Woodcut technique
15 March, 2014 at St John Lee parish hall, 9.30 am – 12.30 pm
WORKSHOP 2: Woodcut technique
15 March, 2014 at St John Lee parish hall, 1.30 pm – 4.30 pm
For those who took part in our Inspiring Stones art activity last year, one of these half day workshops would be an ideal opportunity to compare ideas and to develop prints from sketches and paintings done then.
WORKSHOP 3 Drypoint techniques
5 April, 2014, 10 am – 4.30 pm.
We will begin with a short visit to Dukesfield Arches to collect material, followed by printing at Slaley Commemoration Hall.
Please bring a packed lunch.
About the workshops:
Jan is an inspiring and experienced professional printer and teacher. She will take as her subjects any images inspired by the Dukesfield project – the Dukesfield Arches, the Lead Way between there and the riverside wharves at Blaydon, the Carriers, their ponies and carts, or more abstract ideas sparked by these images. Participants can gather their own material or use the photographs that will be provided.
