A visiting artists workshop
A two day workshop looking at different approaches to printing directly with found natural materials such as leaves, feathers, bark, seeds and grass. There will be a range of natural objects provided for you to use and you may also want to bring your own to try.
You will be able to explore Ruth’s technique of combining direct relief prints from natural objects with a hand-cut paper stencil, printing on delicate Japanese paper to build an image in several layers.
You will also have the opportunity to use natural objects to create beautiful collagraphs (a print from a collage) that can be printed intaglio and/or relief.
Ruth will bring examples of her work using natural materials and you can also visit her website gallery at www.ruththomas.net.
Ruth is a member of the Royal Cambrian Academy and the Makers Guild Wales.
Date: Thursday & Friday 18th & 19th Aug 2022 10am – 4 pm
