An introduction to Print Share

Print Share meet monthly, so if you get the printmaking bug – you can join the group to begin printmaking more regularly, building up your skills and experience with others, sharing equipment, materials, techniques and ideas.  Please see listings section for more information.

Our workshops have been designed for those who are new to printmaking – all levels of experience are welcome.  Places are limited to 10 people per workshop and those booking the whole course will be given priority.  Refreshments are provided – please bring a packed lunch.

Our workshops have been kindly sponsored by Hawthorn Printmakers and Intaglio Printmaker. Any profit from these workshops will go back into Print Share to help the group buy equipment and materials.

Paper Lithography workshop with Anna Litchfield
Saturday 25th May 2019, 10am to 3pm

Paper Lithography is a great way to make monoprints using a photocopy as a plate and gum Arabic as a resist.  It’s based on lithographic techniques and uses high contrast photocopies and oil based inks to create unique prints.  Photographs can be manipulated using free software to increase contrast and images from papers and magazines can be collaged and photocopied – a modern take on a traditional technique!
