Day One - welcome and introduction, providing sketching materials and possible uses ‘out in the field’.
Walking out from the Tattenhall Centre to an open viewpoint looking across the fields to the Peckforton Hills (approx. 0.5 km). Mindful, quick, loose, mixed media sketching producing as much material as possible on a2/a3 cartridge paper in a short time.
Back at the art room using our sketches to crop and collage on card/more cartridge paper or own sketchbooks if you prefer. Think about then begin to explore ideas from our studio work to a more ‘finished’ level on canvas or wood panel.
Day Two – Further work on our mixed media studies begun the day before together with exploring ideas from yesterday’s sketching session using intaglio printing, etching on Perspex and card, using the print press. There will also be opportunities to explore further using mono, hand printing.
All participants should produce a large body of sketchbook work some of which will have been developed further, as well as number of their own prints, hot off the press! The aim is also that you go away with ideas on a structure of working, an artistic process that can be adapted to any landscape and your studio practice.
