The cost of the day includes a tour of the House and Garden, a delicious artisan lunch, tea and coffees, and all tools and materials.
Learn the processes of woodcut printmaking, from design to carving, inking to printing. Using this most beautiful and immediate of art forms, participants will come away with a series of their own exciting and ambitious original prints inspired by the House and Garden.
The day includes a tour of the House, with time allowed for sketching. The rest of the day will be spent realising your designs in print.
About the tutor:
"I draw directly from the landscape onto wooden blocks, I then carve into the blocks and print from them. All of my work is handmade and each one of my pieces is given individual life though chine colle (paper overlay) and hand tinting, just as the mood of a scene shifts with light, time and experience.
I spend time in the places my work depicts, returning to them. My prints are imbued with the emotion of place. Working outdoors enables me to connect with the spirit of the place, capturing the line and fluidity of scenes and localities."
