Workshop with Eric Gaskell ARBSA
Eric will guide you through the steps of drawing a design (what works for print?), cutting a lino tile (which parts do you need to leave?), and proofing prints to create a final print.
This workshop is suitable for all abilities, including beginners.
Eric Gaskell ARBSA: "I studied fine art at Wigan and Sunderland, leaving college in 1980 with a Max Beckmann and Istanbul Summer School scholarships and the Sunderland Fine Art Prize. I have continually worked in the creative industries, teaching, illustrating and exhibiting around the world. I have shown in New York, Quebec, Ghent, Dublin, London and around the UK as both a painter and printmaker in numerous one-man and group shows since the early 1980s. Drawing is key to my work and has been since college. It is both a diary, an academic exercise and a way to work through ideas. My print work is colourful and structured moving from tightly figurative to symbolic/iconographic work. In print I prefer linocut, its strong, flat colour and its physical mark-making suit my working methods. I like how its graphic appearance seems immediate but can actually take many days of work to produce"
