Breaking the Boundaries - Experimental Printmaking Summer School in Fife

Off the Rails Arthouse, Ladybank Station House , Victoria Street , Ladybank, Fife , KY15 7JT map
10am-4pm each day Course fee- £225 This exciting week will take the theme of Boundaries as a starting point, thinking about the edges between town and country, as well as the contrasting ideas of home and journeys. Day one will focus on gathering information out and about in the varied landscapes around Ladybank. Students will be guided through different sketching methods, working with colour, tone and composition. Sketches made will then be used as inspiration to plan and make a two-plate lino cut design over the next two days. Students will be guided through the process and encouraged to work freely within the format – multi-coloured printmaking methods will be looked at. Time will then be spent exploring monotype printmaking techniques – the monotype process is a loose and painterly approach to printmaking, which creates a one-off image. The week will culminate with students making multi-layered images that explore the theme of Boundaries in creative and innovative ways using the techniques explored earlier in the week.
