“REVOLTING” A two day intensive workshop

“REVOLTING” A two day intensive workshop: Kara Seaman and Rose Davies

Saturday and Sunday 26th and 27th July 10.30 am to 5.00 pm

Printmaking has a long and noble tradition of political agitation and
scathing social comment. From Hogarth’s satires on social conditions in
the 18th century to the political artist collectives in the French riots
of 1968 to contemporary Urban artists like Banksy and Miss Tic,
printmaking has communicated radical ideas to the masses. Rose and Kara
will give you a grounding in the historical context of Printmaking as
agit prop along with practice in the techniques you need to produce
prints without studio facilities or expensive specialised equipment. As
far as possible, the workshop will use recycled or re-usable materials
and water-based inks. This workshop will include teaching fees,
materials and access to equipment, professional and studio practice,
full-colour course notepack and an illustrated talk. No previous
printmaking experience necessary.
