Another fun night printing but lino printing is a bit tricky to get your head round as everything prints in reverse. Some students got the knack pretty quickly and produced some very nice work. Next week it is printing with ‘found objects’ ie feathers, leaves, wool and any other bits and bobs. Maybe we can also add a very clever string trick into the mix?
Everyone agreed, what a fun class it was last night. Angus showed us how to get creative and make some wrapping paper from one small drawing. Everyone produced very different designs so here is a small selection to get you inspired for next week!
Ally Wardlaw’s creative stitch workshop at Nethybridge community centre is currently waiting for confirmation re dates for the group to meet.
Selected dates at the moment are;
Sat. 2nd Sept.
The intention being that the group would meet to share ideas, learn from each other, and pass on techniques old and new to one another. Ally is happy to demonstrate some processes etc. to those unfamiliar with textiles but hopes the group will all work together creatively.
Please contact Ally direct to find out costs.
Great work by everyone involved this weekend. A total of £331 was raised at the tombola so thanks to everyone involved.
Last chance to e-mail your images to be made into stencils. Please e-mail them before tonight’s lesson so Angus will have time to work on the images so they can be used.
Select an image that is a silhouette against a strongly contrasting background. Remember these images will be cut out so shapes within shapes will fall out, you will be left with an outline.
See you tonight.
Our lovely tutor Angus is exhibiting his work next month in Kingussie and we’re all invited to opening night.
He’s teamed up with Campbell Bryson (ex-GGS head of art) for the show, Lochs and Landscapes, at the Iona Gallery.
They’re promising a glass of wine (or a softie for the drivers) and some colourful paintings inspired by the Highlands.
It’s a great wee gallery, run by the Society of Badenoch and Strathspey Artists. If you’ve never been,, this is the perfect opportunity!
Launch night is on Friday July 7, from 7pm-9pm and the show runs until July 14.
