Woodcut printmaking was a form that both Vanessa Bell and Duncan Grant explored to create striking and beautiful works of art.
Learn the processes of woodcut printmaking, with tutor Helen Brown, from design to carving, inking to printing.
Using this most immediate of art forms, participants will create a series of their own exciting and ambitious original prints inspired by the Omega Workshops exhibition.
The day includes a tour of the House, with time allowed for sketching. The rest of the day will be spent realising your designs in print.
The cost of the day includes a private tour of the House for inspiration and entrance into Post Impressionist Living: The Omega Workshops exhibition. All materials and a delicious lunch are included. Suitable for all levels.
About the tutor
“I draw directly from the landscape onto wooden blocks, I then carve into the blocks and print from them. All of my work is handmade and each one of my pieces is given individual life though chine colle (paper overlay) and hand tinting, just as the mood of a scene shifts with light, time and experience.
I spend time in the places my work depicts, returning to them. My prints are imbued with the emotion of place. Working outdoors enables me to connect with the spirit of the place, capturing the line and fluidity of scenes and localities.”
