You will produce your own drypoint etching and be shown how to ink up to develop tones and colour before printing onto quality paper.

Linoprinting and the reduction technique

We are delighted to welcome back to Hunsdon House the very talented Leicester artist and educator Jo Shearer. The method that we will focus on this time is the reduction method, where you develop your printed image in a number of stages, cutting away more of the lino each time to build up different colour layers.

All materials and tools are provided to enable you to develop your own prints along with some inspiring resources, just bring your own lunch.

The workshop is designed for those with some basic grounding in linoprinting, but beginners are more than welcome and will be well supported in the friendly small group setting.

Ceramic relief tiles – botanical themed

Join ceramicist Pippa Presser for a relaxing and mindful pottery session making relief tiles. These are inspired by the wonderful botanical paintings of Marianne North, whose work fills a room at Kew Gardens.

After being introduced to the context and the techniques, you will be making your own relief tiles. Pippa will support and guide you individually and encourage you to experiment with the fabulous medium of clay. Your tiles will either be treated with oxide and glaze-fired, or left untreated for you to paint once fired. The tiles will be available for collection approximately 3 weeks later. 

No previous pottery experience is needed, and all materials are provided.

Pippa Prosser is an experienced art educator and ceramicist, currently establishing her own studio in Warwickshire
