Wallpaper Weekend Workshop
Friday 31 August 2018 17:00 - Sunday 2 September 2018 16:00
We are really pleased to welcome back to Kingcombe, renowned artist and printmaker Hugh Dunford Wood for a fabulous weekend of creativity.
There will be a natural progression from the simple beginnings of printing with potato cuts, which are great for small runs like a lampshade or an end paper. Then you’ll look at some classic patterns and work out what makes them successful; also you will be shown some less successful patterns (some being Hugh’s) for comparison.
You will be encouraged to do some direct observational plant drawing to then use as a basis for an original design (which might even end up as an abstract). This will then be worked up in repeat (with guidance) and transferred in reverse onto a lino block, which will be cut and printed.
Et voila, everyone there is a confirmed designer!
