Printmaking with LINO and Monoprinting techniques Tutor: Jackie Devereux PSGFACourse Code: 4820-04
A printmaking course with a difference, incorporating linocutting, monoprinting and an element of paper sculpture thrown in!
Whether you have dipped into printmaking or not, there will be lots to discover and explore for all levels. We shall use the latest easy-cut lino and basic tools to create unique printing blocks, as well as experimenting with printing from torn paper, lace and whatever else is to hand. Traditional as well as contemporary methods will be employed and the use of a variety of beautiful delicate papers will tease your taste-buds into submission.
Please bring with you
Linocutting tools if you have them
Lino or easy-cut lino
Fine and Medium black spirit ink pens (If you prefer, I can provide materials for purchase, paper, ink and tools so long as I know ahead of time. A small charge will be made)
We shall be working on a fairly small scale and if you have some vague ideas as to a design you would like to develop, please bring sketches along.
Suitable for all levels

Greatly influenced by Japanese art and the light of southern France, Jackie’s work ranges from pure contemporary watercolour on a large scale, to delicate pencil and expressive pen and ink – all experimental in nature. She has travelled extensively and as drawing is an integral part of her work and development her sketchbook is her constant companion. An experienced adult tutor, Jackie enjoys working with groups and sharing her ideas and techniques and watching others develop their potential.

She has shown with the RWS, RI and with the Society of Graphic Fine Art regularly in Menier Gallery, Southwark and Bankside Gallery, London.

"The course opened my mind to other ways of working with ink and watercolour. The course was a success and Jackie was very supportive." (November 2019)
"As always, a superb course stretching my abilities in all directions. I appreciated the many tips and instructions for mounting and presentation and the tutor's own inspiring work to see." (November 2019)
"Jackie was most helpful, especially as I am not an artist and a complete beginner; she was very patient." (Summer School 2019)
