Create beautiful Paper Sculpture
Come along to The Slipper Studio for a days making and learn how to create beautiful paper sculpture. Using a deceptively simple process, you will learn how to create a cornucopia of hanging and free standing paper sculptures from old books, before moving onto teacups, jugs or teapots, which are the stars of the show.
Once you have learnt the techniques at the workshop, and with just a few basic pieces of equipment, you will be able to design and create your own sculptural forms at home.
Saturday 7th May, 10 – 4pm, just 3 places to allow for social distancing, £79 per person, including: tuition, use of equipment, materials, plus refreshments served throughout the day; just bring your lunch.
Create with a Gel Plate – mono printing without a Press
Gel printing plates are a lively and instant method for creating mono prints, with the advantage that you don’t require a printing press. Each print is unique and this highly adaptable process invites experimentation.
Gel plates look and feel like gelatin, but are durable and reusable. They come in a range of shapes and sizes, are easy to clean and are always ready for printing; used in conjunction with acrylic paints, you will just need a soft roller to apply the paint.
I will guide you through a range of techniques, including: layering, impressing, creating stencils and exploring masking techniques with leaves and flowers. You will leave with a range of mono prints that can be seen as outcomes in their own right or can be starting points for further processes, such as painting or lino cuts. They can be collaged and used to create cards and gift tags or used in creative journals and sketch pads.
This workshop will suit the creative beginner or those with experience of different creative processes and techniques.
Saturday 14th May, 10 – 4pm, just 3 places to allow for social distancing, £79 per person, including: tuition, use of equipment*, most materials, plus refreshments served throughout the day; just bring your lunch.
You will need to buy a gel plate: 6 x 6 inch, 5 x 7 inch and 8 x 10 inch plates can be found at: www.handprinted.co.uk
