DPG x Camberwell College of Arts: Workshop
This one-day workshop is part of a series of events by Dulwich Picture Gallery in collaboration with Camberwell College of Arts.
Get a taste of printmaking at Camberwell College of Arts in this short introductory course inspired by Frankenthaler's innovative printmaking techniques. Join Camberwell School of Art Printmaking tutors Professor Paul Coldwell, Johanna Love and MA printmaking students from Camberwell College of Art who will lead you in this introductory printmaking workshop.
In this all-day workshop you will be guided in the basics of working with relief printing, and introduced to the techniques of monotype, collotype, and woodblock printing. You will be encouraged to experiment while also gaining insights into Helen Frankenthaler’s printmaking practice.
You’ll come away having developed your printmaking skills and confidence in experimenting with printmaking techniques inspired by traditional and contemporary practices and learnt from the students and staff about more advanced practices. You’ll also come away with your own series of experimental prints.
All experience levels are welcome, including complete beginners.
All materials will be provided.
