The art of collage or the discovery of the many possibilities offered by paper.
Creating a range of colours, collecting all kinds of paper, cutting, tearing shapes, composing an image and telling a story in an abstract or illustrative way are some of the different step by step in this workshop.
Linocutting workshop in a little corner of paradise
All starts by a drawing then a rubber block is sculpted by hand with a gouge before doing the same onto a linoleum sheet.
And here is the result !
A first day of initiation to linocut for Laurence and very nice results.
First tests on rubber block, easy to dig with a gouge, then work on linoleum. The “cutting board” specially designed to block the linoleum plate makes it easier to work and avoids hurting yourself with the gouge.
It is printed with a spoon, which gives very good results. But you can also use a binding press. The results vary according to the ink and the support (paper / cloth) used.
It was on a hot day that Celine, aka “Rag doll”, started to learn linocutting.
After a first try on an eraser block to practice gouging, Céline transferred one of her drawings on a linoleum plate using white transfer paper (Copyrite) and patiently dug the plate to reveal the patterns.
The inking and the spoon marouflage produced very beautiful impressions.
Bravo Céline !
Printing from Tetra pack® packaging is the art of recycling.
Perfect to learn about engraving.
The material is easily cut with a cutter knife or a pair of scissors.
Dry-point engraving is done on the side covered with “aluminium” paper, then certain parts are removed to reveal the cardboard and then reveal deep “blacks” later on.
The plate is inked with intaglio inks using a small tarlatan pad.
It is necessary to insist on the bare parts and the grooves.
The printing is done on intaglio press with a special sheet of paper for engraving or wet watercolour paper.
If there is no intaglio press, a pasta machine can be used.
Workshops start again during the summer. To continue to respect the barrier gestures, you will not be more than 2 at a time.
Introduction to engraving from recycled material – preparation of a printing plate on Tetra brick packaging, creation of “deep black” areas for printing – “A la poupée” inking process – intaglio printing on an intaglio press.
Preparatory drawing defining the surfaces to be inked – tips for quick transfer of the drawing – cutting the block of rubber or the plate of linoleum linoleum (at you choice) with a gouge – inking with a rubber brayer using water-based inks for linocut – printing on paper either with an old binding press or with a spoon.
Preparation of a printing plate by gluing and varnishing different materials on a rigid cardboard plate – varnishing of the plate, both sides – inking “à la poupée” with intaglio inks – spoon printing on intaglio paper.
Little papers or printed plain or coloured, covered with pictures or text, embellished with gold or stamped patterns, drawn or painted… They will be cut, torn, then pasted harmoniously on a background to compose a figurative or abstract illustration.
Due to public health guidelines regarding coronavirus and mandatory containment, the April 3rd workshop has been postponed to Saturday, May 23rd. Stay safe, take care! See you soon!
Come and spend a day at the workshop to practice the art of collage with plain or printed paper, enhanced with gold or with stamp, liner or painted motifs… They will be cut, torn, then glued harmoniously on a background to compose a figurative or abstract illustration.
