About

Join Jemma Gunning on this two-day workshop, we will work closely with nature to create vibrant and textural printed artwork using foraged plants and flowers found in the Peak District. Explore spontaneous and playful techniques in monoprinting, using non-toxic inks to print natural forms onto paper. Learn the versatility of printmaking, using low-tech and professional equipment to enable you to continue creating at home.

NB:  Suitable for all abilities from the experienced practitioner who might be looking to learn new skills, to, the complete beginner. No printmaking experience is needed, its more about allowing yourself time and freedom to experience a new creative outlet. 

Day one: 

In the morning we will venture out into the Peak District to create a series of lively trace mono- prints working directly from the landscape that surrounds Bullclough Art School. Whilst out walking we will forage for organic materials to print with after lunch. 

The afternoon will be spent printing nature using the humble pasta press. This unassuming yet effective piece of equipment more often found in your kitchen, will quickly have you printing colourful, impulsive, multi-layered prints.

Day two: 

We will spend the day expanding your skills and techniques learnt from day one using an etching press to produce reductive and additive monotypes. These are painterly and expressive ways of creating images that are one offs, providing very unique results. You will begin to develop your own graphical voice to express what you have experienced whilst out in the landscape. Spend the day exploring composition, layering and utilising all of the skills that you have learnt with guided support. I will be with you all the way, sharing my knowledge and passion for printmaking, enabling you to carry on this journey.
