Tilton House Residential Workshop scheduled for August 2016, East Sussex, UK
Japanese Water-based Woodcut Printmaking (mokuhanga) 3 night/4 day residential course.
Over the course of 4 days (Monday afternoon August 22nd - Thursday afternoon August 25th 2016) I will be running a residential course at the stunning TILTON HOUSE in East Sussex, the former home of Maynard Keynes for 9 artists.
This workshop is designed to introduce artists new to mokuhanga to build on their existing skills as printmakers and to further develop techniques and approaches in this captivating form of non-toxic printmaking. Spend time drawing from surrounding nature, and apply those ideas to create a multi-block colour print. There will be time for in depth experimentation and exploration with techniques in both carving and printmaking, with the opportunity to work on a larger scale with various types of washi. This workshop hopes to develop students' confidence with mokuhanga, allowing the application of these techniques back in the studio. For more details and bookings please contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
'The workshop area (at Tilton House) was a study added by Maynard Keynes. It's a deeply peaceful and atmospheric space with large wall-to-floor arched windows that look south across the downs. Keynes said of the place, "There is no better air than here for work."'
