Further Monoprinting, Multiple block Relief, Printmaking with Keyblock Lino, and Woodcuts
Sue Jones is an artist, printmaker, tutor, consultant, and founder organiser of the Cambridge Original Printmakers Biennale, an exhibition to promote hand-pulled original print in our region. Sue worked at the Curwen Print Study Centre for 17 years as lead tutor and studio manager. She now teaches here at Stapleford Granary, Gainsborough House, and her own studio, as well as working as an artist facilitator with Kettles Yard, in Cambridge.
Sues abstract prints are inspired by landscape and are infused with a sense of mystery, vitality, colour and space. The Monotypes are unique, evolved over time, constructed of many layers. Working with many techniques, Sue currently enjoys experimenting with photopolymer gravure, and photolithography from her own studio.
This course explores further monotypes using textured surfaces and found objects, looking at ghost and shadow printing, counter proofs, hybrid printmaking with drypoint and layering to create unique prints. Key block lino enables you to create multi coloured images with multiple blocks and experiment with as many different colour ways as you want. Woodcut is a process that harnesses the natural beauty of the side grain of soft wood to produce beautiful relief prints. These taught sessions explore each technique with personal development days to revisit, developing and owning the techniques of your choice.
