Event description
Learn a new fun printmaking techniques from the comfort of your own home and inspired by the current October Gallery exhibition.

About this Event

Join Georgie Fay(Our Head of Education and printmaker) to experiment with simple printmaking techniques reflecting on the current exhibition at October Gallery by Algerian artist Rachid Koraïchi 'Tears that Taste of the Sea'.

We will give you an online tour of the exhibition and talk through some of the artist's ideas and techniques which we will then use as inspiration to create our own prints. We will be using simple monoprint techniques to ensure you can print from home.

We will send you the Zoom link on the day along with the link to padlet, an online platform which you can use to upload and share images.

You will need: (we try to make our online learning as accessible as possible but there are a few things you really need for printing)

- ink roller

- Ink .......We recommend for monoprinting to invest in some 'Caligo Safe Wash etching or relief ink' (useful links are at the bottom) but you can use water-based block printing ink and even acrylic paint if you water it down a bit (this does dry too fast to get multiple prints) - try some different colours this time (!?)

- Plastic flat surface, like a sheet of acrylic - I like to use a A4 laminated piece of paper

- Thin Paper (Chinese calligraphy paper is extra nice, but normal A4 printing paper is perfect)

- pen/pencil

- A3 paper for final piece - nice cartridge paper or from a sketchbook

- oil pastels if you have them already

- baking paper or tracing paper

Extra bits if you want to experiment more: lino and tools, polystyrene sheet, corks, plastic sheet to make stencils - bring your art kit basically!
