Introduction to Printmaking

Saturday 26th January

Your tutor is Louise Waugh, who will lead this introduction day to different printmaking techniques, where you will have a chance to make multiple images using a small etching press. Just bring an apron, enthusiasm and any images that would translate into print.

  • Linocuts – designing, cutting and printing your own linocut
  • Collographs – a collaged block, printed as an intaglio print.
  • Drypoint – a form of etching on an acrylic sheet.
  • Monoprints – one off prints .

Louise has been a printmaker for most of her life and has found it an inspiring and magical process where the possibilities are infinite!

​Louise is a painter and printmaker working in west Somerset. Her still lives and landscapes have been exhibited throughout the UK and also in America, Spain, Italy and Ireland, as well being shown regularly in the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition.

“Creating art has always been core to my being, and from my early days when I studied etching in Granada, Spain, I have always taken the path of the artist that defines who I am. Largely self taught having trained as a teacher in Bath, I began exhibiting at 20 and my first exhibition was at the then Bristol Arts Centre where I exhibited large woodcuts and linocuts. My life continued as an artist, choosing not to teach and I exhibited both here and abroad over the following years.”
