Screen Print with Carol and Robert (Week 2)


Here are some photos from the week 2 of Robert and Carols Masterclass printmaking course .  Thanks Catherine King, for sharing your photos with us.  Looks interesting I must say.



Carol and Robert shared their extensive knowledge on screen printing with gouaches, acrylics, watercolours, process colours, organic pigment pastes, pigments and a range of artists materials such as varnishes, thickener, retarders and screenprinting paste. 

Carol showed participants how to use stencils to the maximum, how to do washes with filler and how best to use screen painting fluid.   Different types of paper stencil, light sensitive stencils and reversals were also explored. 


Preparing and degreasing screens, applying stencils, cross-linking theory, registration and printing on different substrates, as well as cleaning meshes were also covered.

Photo Etching Masterclasses Sat 27th Feb + 6th March 2010


Fife (Dunfermline) Print Workshop, The Basement, Dell Farquharson Centre,
Nethertown Broad Street, Dunfermline KY12 7DS  email  aine@ainescannell.com




Paul Musgrove  Photo Etching Masterclasses  Saturday 27th Feb. & 6th March 2010

Masterclasses in new intaglio techniques  10.00am – 4.00pm.

How to etch plates using  liquid roll on photopolymer emulsion.

Images can be made from photographs, digital files or from drawn artwork;  all can be etched onto the metal plate and then printed using conventional intaglio techniques.

 You will work on A5 plates (148mm x 210mm) so please make your artworks to this scale and proportions. All images should have good tonal contrast with limited mid-tones, neither too light nor too dark.

Digital techniques are extremely useful for making photo positives for photopolymer etching.  A good positive image on film (i.e. Inkjet acetate) is essential.

If you have digital files of finished artwork they should be sized appropriately for the A5 plates we will be using, as the technique relies on a contact exposure with the plate.

Bring along discs, USB sticks etc.,  with your saved artworks or bring your original artwork for scanning.

Hand drawn:  images on tracing paper can be used as can drafting film.

Images on paper can be in most media,  as long as they have good strong blacks and a range of  tones.   All drawing materials should be reasonably opaque.   If you have the facilities at home then scan the images you make and save them to disc or USB stick and bring with you.

If you are unsure what kind of artwork to bring along then please bring a good range of source material with you to work with on the day.*

Bring brushes of various shapes and sizes.
Art materials, pens, pencils, etc.






Cost:  

£60 (non members)

£50  (£10 discount for FDPW members)

Artists in Dunfermline

Mary Johnston has been in touch and wanted to let the FDPW membership know about something called CAD.  CAD - has taken over the Glen Gates Gallery from DAM,  and intend running 'gallery days' on  the 1st Saturday of each month.


                                          image from caves in Ardeche, France
 

The next one is  on 5th Dec from 10am to 4 pm  at the Glen Gates in  Dunfermline. They are inviting artists to take part and show work. 

If anyone is interested could they let us know. It is a good chance to meet other artists, network and promote work.
Check out their web site -  <http://www.caddelivers.weebly.com> for further information.


       

Printmaking with Carol Robertson and Robert Adam (Week 1 of 4)

Aren't we lucky to have this great opportunity to have two such experienced, knowledgeable and  affable printmakers to share their expertise with us !!  And to have their lovely dog Hugo included in the visit as well !!

Don't know about the rest of you but I was shattered at the end of the day last Saturday and yet I spent most of the time listening watching and occasionally talking ...............BUT......I wasn't the only one.  I did feel inspired though and in fact yesterday and at this very moment  I am working on making some positives for photo etch exposure tomorrow - that's if I get these finished.
Tatiana Campbell  and Anita  Hunter, were also on the case yesterday making positives.  Anita was really going for it with three layers of positives to hopefully use to make  a silkscreen print tomorrow morning at FDPW.  Here's a few photos taken by Steve Ratomski, on the day ( thanks for getting  those to me, Steve).

Update on Robert Adams and Carol Robertsons Course at FDPW

Master classes by, Carol Robertson and Robert Adam 
They were both classically trained in Scotland and then at the Slade where they met in the 1980s. From that strong base they have used their knowledge and inventiveness to develop systems of printmaking which relate closely to classical theory and practice, allow artists to realize their concepts, and make the widest range of marks and effects in the safest and easiest ways possible. The systems make use of modern and classical materials and working methods.
They developed, tested and validated these new systems by collaborating with a wide range of artists. These include Paolozzi, Barns-Graham, Ogilvie, Callander, Rae, Clark, Crowe, Miles, Schmidt, Diethelm and Downie.
In order to make these ways of working available to as many artists as possible worldwide they worked with Evans Vanodine, Lascaux and other professionals to develop modern products and systems. The eighteen innovative printmaking products that they have created in collaboration with Lascaux, Zurich are available from Graphic Chemical (USA), Polymetaal (Holland) , A. P. Fitzpatrick, London, or Intaglio Printmakers, London.
Black Geo      Collagraph print       Sheila Ogilvie
Carol Robertson and Robert Adam share their research and knowledge through the two books they wrote and illustrated which are published by Thames & Hudson, available through www.amazon.co.uk.
One is about screenprinting with water-based artists materials and how to work creatively in a safe way.  The other book is about intaglio printmaking techniques such as engraving, mezzotint, drypoint, air abrading, etching, collagraphy and combined techniques, again with an emphasis on non toxic printmaking practice.
Both books also explain how to make photographic, digital, photocopy and autographic positives which can be used in conjunction with light-sensitive processes in screenprinting, etching, air abrading, and collagraphy. The two books,  also cover the history, monotyping, collating etc.
Carol has just completed writing a PhD which explains the concepts and research behind the books, again with the aim to share this information with other artists.

C O  U R S E
In each of the workshops the theory and practice relating to the new systems will be explained and demonstrated. The sessions will also provide an opportunity to ask questions about the theories, materials, methods, and ways of starting to work in these ways, realizing concepts and reasons for change. 
The four sessions are designed to work together. The idea is that after each session artists can explore the subject in their own time before the next session and the following session will provide an opportunity to discuss results and experiences.   For example positives can be made after the session on the 14th and these can be used in combination with the information provided in the following sessions. The sessions will be filmed and extracts used as education material.

Making autographic positives.
Saturday 14th November,  10 – 4. 
Make autographic and combination positives for screenprinting, etching, or collagraphy. Use the new materials which were inspired by Corot and Millet’s cliché verres, soft ground collage effects, the sugar lift’s of Picasso, Chagall, and Rouault etchings (made using autographic positives), the etched relief lines of William Blake, monotyping marks, and the reticulated washes of stone and zinc lithography, etc. Combine digital, photographic and photocopy positives and learn how to make and use image ‘maps’.
NOTE There will be a Master class on 'photo etching' (2 sessions) in February 2010 (next year).  These will be lead by Paul Musgrove, who has been recommended by Alfons Bytautas, senior etching technician at Edinburgh Print workshop.
Screen Printing.
Saturday November 28th,  10 – 4. 
Screenprinting with gouaches, acrylics, watercolours, process colours, organic pigment pastes, pigments and a range of artists materials such as varnishes, thickener, retarders and screenprinting paste. Using stencils to the maximum, washes with filler and using screen painting fluid, different types of paper stencil, light sensitive stencils and reversals. Preparing and degreasing screens, applying stencils, cross-linking theory, registration and printing on different substrates, cleaning meshes will also be covered.

Collagraphy  
Saturday December 5th,  10 – 4.
Making collagraphs, photo collagraphs and combined media plates using acrylic media and light sensitive media. Exploring how to make printed effects that are more normally associated with aquatint, open bite, hard ground, painting and soft ground etching. Preparing and degreasing plates, applying media, editing and working into the added media, removing media using a household cleaner, and printing and cleaning plates will also be covered.

Acrylic-resist Etching
Saturday December 12th,  10 – 4.
Using acrylic resists to explore classical etching methods such as linear and the tonal effects of texturing and pitting, traditional methods such as spirit and powder aquatint, stopping-out and light sensitive resists and contemporary methods such as spray aquatint, puncture and additive techniques. Preparing and degreasing plates for resists, applying resists, etching plates using corrosive salts, removing resists using a household cleaner, and printing and cleaning plates will also be covered.

Black Church Print Studio Open closing date 14th Nov 2009



Call for submissions—deadline 16 Nov 2009. Black Church Print Studio Open Submission & Invited Exhibition 2010, curated by Oliver Dowling, John Graham & Margaret O'Brien

Exhibition Brief
 "The visible often seems paramount in the workings of human perception, especially in the modern technological world where what we see increasingly dominates the texture of our experience. We might consider the invisible to be the opposite of the visible, or perhaps as a transparent overlapping or hidden substrate of the visible world:


The ‘Invisible' is an open submission exhibition and invites all forms of art and art practice for consideration, including visual, sound, temporal and performance based works. The exhibition will take place in February 2010 and will be sited in several locations around Dublin city.
 Artists are invited to submit proposal-based works and/or existing works. Site-specific proposals may detail a particular site as listed or propose an alternative site. Artists may consider using their own studios and/or sites other than conventional exhibition spaces. Accessibility must be outlined and confirmed in the case of an alternative site being proposed. Artists might also consider restricted accessibility in relation to the context of the work.
Participating venues include Original Print Gallery, Curiosity Cabinet, The Back Loft c/o La Catedral Studios, Digital Hub Development Agency. The Curators may identify additional locations depending on proposals received.




Exhibit at Torpedo Factory Art Centre Dec 2009



This is an exhibition "quickie",  as well as easy. These things are good to do if you just feel in the mood to do some little print works (postcard size). 





Maybe if you haven't shown in a while or if you could do with  adding some shows to your  CV.
If you send one postcard it will cost you 10 dollars (US).    When I have previously submitted prints to exhibitions biennial type events -  I never send cash through my bank because it costs £25.00 to do that kind of transaction,  which I think is utterly EXTORTIONATE   in the context of current electronic communications.


Whereas,  Paypal,  hardly costs anything at all which is something that I wish all of these exhibition 'hosts' would get together.   I'ts not that difficult (duh)  I have taken the step I might add, of suggesting this to some of them
I usually order foreign currency of the country involved and then enclose it in the envelope.  I know there's always a first time...............  but so far (and thats after a fair few years)  - it's usually been OK.
Anyway the torpedo factory is a place based in Alexandria in Virginia.

Please note  the image above is by Laura Huff from the torpedo factory print workshop.
Here's the blurb:

Miniprint Cadaques submissions open till March 2010









I have to say I preferred more of the prints that were in the "finalists section" than the actual "winners section".

Here's a link to the site where forms for entry can be downloaded

Printmaking is alive and kicking! (latest info. from Carol and Robert)



Experience printmaking’s latest moves, and discover how they relate closely to classical, traditional and contemporary techniques. Printmaking originated around A.D 105 and has been evolving ever since. The systems that Carol and Robert will demonstrate at the workshops are part of this evolution. If you are curious to know more,  come along to the workshops and find out:

• How you can now draw with a pencil or crayon directly on an etching plate to generate an etched line

• How to realise your concepts through printmaking

• How classical theory is the foundation of acrylic resist etching

• What you can do when you screenprint with fantastic artists painting materials like gouache, watercolour, organic pigment pastes, acrylics, pigments, oroton, varnishes, retarders and thickeners

• How to make a painting or drawing that can be printed ??
• How using these new methods enables us to etch plates very deeply etched or even right through like the zinc plate illustrated below




• About photocollagraphs and combined intaglio methods

• Ways of working creatively and safely

• The reasons that these systems work well in combination with digital positives

• What exactly is exciting about change and what opportunities does it create

•  How to make many different images and editions from one plate


 (the print below is an example of this working method)


In the workshops and in the time, between the sessions,  you can also try using the materials and systems to: 

• Make collagraph prints that look like aquatints, open-bite  and hard and soft ground etchings.

• Create autographic positives with the tusches that were inspired by the cliché verres of Corot and Millet, soft ground collage effects, the sugar lift’s of Picasso, Chagall, and Rouault etchings, the etchings of William Blake, monotyping marks, painted marks, and the reticulated washes of stone and zinc lithography.



Carol holding Kate Downie’s screen print The Quarry Path (below)



which was created by painting and drawing with tusches and printed with the Chinese ink, pastels and Indian inks that Kate draws and paints with.

• Making aquatints which are like spirit, powder or spray aquatints as in Downies etching Wych Elm below.


These are just some of the creative possibilities that you can explore in these workshops, there are many more and the sessions will include time to ask questions and discuss experiences and ideas.

Introductory Printmaking Course at FDPW (September 2009)




Probably seems like ages ago now but it was only a few weeks ago that Colin Beaumont (tutor)  and six students completed the "Introduction to Print Making" course, at Fife Dunfermline Print Workshop over the span of four Saturdays.

Tatiana Campbell ( FDPW member) arranged with Colin, to go along on their final Saturday and document their activities.  I know from teaching courses and workshops myself, that it is extremely difficult to take photographs of the 'course' when you are the teacher !!    So I just wish that I had had the luxury of someone like T, to assist me in this.




Here you can see Colin, in the workshop, with a participant.  They  appear to be discussing something that has just gone through the etching press.  I must say she looks really pleased!!




On the course they did relief and intaglio.  They were making collagraphs on the final day and  made some very nice pieces.  If you want to see more check out Colins new website.

Glynis Porter, recent M.A. printmaking Graduate



I came across this artist who recently graduated from London Print studios M.A. course in printmaking and professional practice, which they run in collaboration with Brighton University.  It's been going for about five years now.
The most recent batch have taken the smart step of setting up a website documenting the work from their final show. 
This was something that would have been a good step for my Masters group to have taken but that was in 1994 and I guess none of us were web savvy at the time
There was loads of fantastic artworks ( paintings and prints)  and being as it was held at Winchester school of art, it probably didn't get as much of an audience, as it deserved.  

We had all just returned from a very expensive year of living in Barcelona where the course was based and we could just about afford the catalogue.  in fact some people didn't even participate in the publication.  

I remember using a computer from around the early 1980's but that was while I was on a course and then we were just using it for word processing.  I found that experience useful, in that it helped me to get part time work when I was a student.  I was supposed to be  helping this wonderful old friend, to write up his manuals for medical equipment.  In fact the building we worked in Finsbury park, in North London is now an artists studio building, where a friend of mine,Lesley Davy, now owns a studio.  

I have had my own computer fairly well since about  1989 although I can't remember exactly when we got connected to the internet. That was when I hooked up with my partner, C, who's an architect ( and so computer savvy, which was very helpful to me, as at that time I was still struggling with learning Photoshop). Maybe it was the early 1990's. 
Anyway as is often the case I digress.  The website where you can check out the printmakers group I mentioned above is  http://www.proofgallery.co.uk/page13.htm.

Monique Auricchio Australian Printmaker


I came across this print recently and thought it exquisite!!.  Monique  is mainly using intaglio processes.  She is also a chum of /has exhibited with lino printmaker  Rona Green,  who I have participated with in the PNP print exchange program recently.

To see more of Monique auricchio's work click HERE and HERE.

There are also 3 or 4 more of hers on this page  on here which I think are just gorgeous. concerning birds.

Been in your Kitchen Cupboard lately ??



Check out Linda's blog
and a big thank you to her for putting this together - It takes some doing for those of you who have not yet ever tried to shoot and edit a video. Maybe one day I will make one about making trace monotypes with microcrystaline wax and oil based inks.

Master class in Safer Printmaking ( sign up ASAP if you are interested !! )

There's a notice on the notice board at the  print workshop, that Steve put up ( a few days ago).   I saw him working on it,  on the computer screen, in the office.  
I think he wanted to get it up on the notice board, so that people could begin to find out about it.  
It would seem that the people attending the Monoprint master class last Friday which was lead, by Kate Downie, indeed did see it,  as some of them have signed up, already.


Steve was  just about to head off to spend a few days in Switzerland, visiting relatives.  Hope he has a good time as he has been ill all of last week, with a virus.

I was talking to Thora Clyne, yesterday ( good to see her back after a few weeks away from the workshop) about these upcoming classes with Carol and Robert, saying to her, that we ought to notify members. 



Then she said “Look here, it’s up on the wall and already some people have put their names down”.  I hadn't realized it was already up on the notice board.   Eeek I thought, Oh my goodness, I have just got to get my name on there, to get a place on these courses.  
I had not realized that Steve had managed to get that done before he went off on his trip.    

The Master classes that I am referring to, are those which Carol  Robertson and Robert Adam will be leading.  



As you may or may not be aware their approach to printmaking is on the basis of incorporating as many non toxic interventions as possible.    


You may be aware also that they were involved in the instigation/ research and development, of the range of Lascaux, safer non toxic products for printmaking.


See their book "Intaglio" for more information on this and all matters concerning contemporary printmaking practice in this respect.  I (Aine) have had this book for over  a year now and I highly recommend it.


It's gone down in price from when I bought it - I think it was about £25 -30, back then !!! (bah!!)

Incidentally, most of the Lascaux printmaking product range are now  stocked by Intaglio printmakers suppliers in London.


You might also want to check out the Lascaux web site for info about the range of products.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++

Costs for the workshops are £60  (£50 for members).

Week one    Saturday  14th    November  10 – 4.

Screen Printing

Week 2     Saturday   28th  November  10 – 4.

Preparing positives for screen print using Lascaux acrylic etch products and other materials  (these positives can also be used for photo etching).

NOTE There will be a Master class on 'photo etching' (2 sessions) in February 2010 (next year).  These will be lead by Paul Musgrove, who has been recommended to us, by Alfons Bytautas,  senior etching technician at Edinburgh Print workshop.

Week 3    Saturday  5th December   10 – 4.

Collagraph; using the Lascaux acrylic etch product range amongst  other materials.

Week 4   Saturday  12th December  10 – 4.

Acrylic Etch 



using Lascaux acrylic etch, products and other materials. 


These workshops will be in the form of 'demonstrations' as opposed to practical hands on workshops.


So put your name down on the notice board at the workshop if you want to do any of these sessions.







FDPW would like to acknowledge the generous support received from The Andrew Carnegie Trust which has helped to make these Master classes possible.
