In tandem with our current exhibition Nolan à l’Atelier 17, we are delighted to offer a one-day printmaking workshop exploring colour viscosity printing. This unique method was developed in Paris by Stanley William Hayter and results in several colours from a single plate in a single pass through the press.
Our workshop will look at the basic principles of viscosity printing and will be led by Prof. David Ferry, RE who co-curated the current Nolan exhibition. David will show some of the background material behind the exhibition, and share examples specially produced at the Rodd using Nolan's etching press.
The workshop will be based on simple practical applications that can be developed further at home with only basic equipment. The day is suitable for printmakers with little or no experience and is predicated on 'fun and learning', all in one go.
Tea and Coffee are provided. Please bring your own lunch.
