Printing Techniques & Mixed Media Weekend with Karen Carter


Saturday 29th & Sunday 30th September, 10am – 4pm

A fun weekend exploring a variety of printing and transfer techniques, suitable for use on both paper and fabric.

Combine these experiments with collage, stencilling, ink and hand-stitch to produce a wealth of inspiring samples, ready to make into a unique book, or a series of small art pieces.

No experience necessary, just a willingness to play! Lots of demos and individual help available. Wear old clothes and bring a notebook and basic sewing kit.

It would also be useful to come with a theme in mind, for example: ‘seashore finds’ or ‘seed heads’ and some reference images.

We will be doing Solvent Transfers, so bring along b/w photocopies (NOT inkjet prints) with image size approx A5 / A6. The tutor will bring some images too.

Age: Adults
Cost: £95 (all materials included)
