Experiment with colour, shape, composition, texture and pattern in this two-day screen-printing workshop with artist Bonnie Craig.
The workshop will take a creative and playful approach to screen-printing using techniques including layering, masking, overprinting and collage to create unique and expressive prints. Participants will be encouraged to use the screen as an image-making and mark-making tool, and to explore screen-printing as an experimental process.
Participants will bring their own ideas and inspiration to the workshop and will have the opportunity to work both individually and collaboratively. You’ll take home a collection of your own prints, and some collaborative pieces that you’ve worked on with other people.
Screen-printing experience is not needed, but please bring an open mind and be ready to play!
Bonnie Craig is an artist who works predominantly with pattern. Based in Lancaster in north-west England, she has an MA in Surface Pattern and works on public and community art commissions, solo and group exhibitions, and workshops and collaborative artworks.
She has run workshops with organisations such as the Wellcome Collection, Lancashire Science Festival, Light Up Lancaster and Art Market York and has completed residencies with Art Gene, In Certain Places, the Little Beach Hut of Dreams and Artlab at the University of Central Lancashire.
She fell in love with screen-printing four years ago, drawn to the simplicity and speed of the process. She tends to produce one-off screen-prints, as opposed to editions, and often starts work with no set plan – making the most of chance and intuition in her printmaking process.
