Print & Bind Weekend Workshop
solar plate printmaking+
This 2 day workshop combines 3 processes at 2 locations.
Day 1: Cycle with artouride (brompton’s provided) leisurely along the Thames path, exploring the landscapes, architecture and details. You will be introduced to the process of solar plate printmaking, which uses the sun’s ray for exposure. This is a sustainable process using non toxic materials. You will draw, etch and print a number of plates by the end of the day from found materials.
Day 2: We will decamp into the London Centre of Book Arts and you will be introduced to several glueless bookbinding formats which utilises your prints from the previous day. You will also have the opportunity to print a cover using woodtype and the printing press.
We have teamed up with LCBA to offer a unique experience combining outdoor sustainable printmaking with bookbinding. Your guide and tutor will be Barbara Salvadori, a book artist and printmaker. Your cycle guide and assistant will be Jack Blake (designer and artouride founder).
