Lace Trees (27th April 2024)
This unique, signature technique, is where Louise Jannetta has gained a respected reputation as an artist – and now you can try it. Intricate, delicate lace-like trees, branches and foliage are cut and applied to high-quality watercolour paper to construct a lace-like depiction of the majesty of trees. It is a skill that does not fail to impress. The workshop runs from 10am – 4pm. Cost is £100 per person. Most materials and lunch is provided with refreshments and biscuits served all day. Find out more/book here.
Collagraph Plates and Printing (8th June 2024)
A collagraph print is similar to an etching. The plate is made up of collage, a variety of materials which have been glued onto a firm plate. The plate is then inked using the intaglio method, leaving the recessions or indentations to hold the ink so that it will print when passed through the press with dampened paper. There is always a lovely surprise when the paper is lifted from the plate to reveal the results. The workshop runs from 10am – 4pm. Cost is £100 per person. Most materials and lunch is provided with refreshments and biscuits served all day. Find out more/book here.
