October workshops at The Ropewalk
A limited number of places are still available on day workshops being held at The Ropewalk in Barton upon Humber later this month.
Chris Roantree, originally from Scunthorpe, studied printmaking at Lincoln University and the Royal College of Art in London, and often returns to the area to take workshops at The Ropewalk.
On Saturday and Sunday, October 19th and 20th, he is leading a weekend Etching Workshop which is aimed at both beginner and advanced etchers and printmakers.
“This two day workshop will thoroughly explore the vast range of mark making possibilities in both soft, hard ground and aquatint as well as exploring chine colle in an easy, accessible way,” said The Ropewalk’s resident print tutor, Tim Needham.
The following weekend, Saturday, October 26th , Yara Sekiguchi returns with her popular workshop on Silk Painting.
This is a basic course will cover the gutta (resist) outline technique using 100% pure silk and specialised French dyes which can be followed up by an intermediate variation with different techniques/projects.
This workshop is suitable to beginners and the technique will be explained step by step in a very relaxed and fun way and at the end of the day you will take home a unique piece of art.
The weekend workshop costs £70 or £64 for Ropewalk members with an additional charge for materials of £10 while Yara’s course costs £35 or £32 for Ropewalk members with a small additional charge for materials.
