Printmaking with Emily Redman - Create Something Uniquely You!

Thursday 18 July 


Discover the versatile world of printmaking with local artist Emily Redman in this workshop designed for younger artists.

Traditionally used for mass media production, printmaking has a rich history in books, newspapers, textiles, posters, and fine art.

In this session, children will explore the basics of screen-printing and portraiture. They'll create their own portraits using collage, drawing, and screen-printing techniques. 

Participants will learn about the importance of stencils in printmaking and use various materials like pencils, markers, and watercolors to design a patterned background that reflects their unique personalities.

Younger children will start with an easy template, while older participants will work with a more detailed one. Every student will have multiple opportunities to use professional printmaking tools and experience the satisfaction of pulling their own prints.
