Spring Open Studios: Saturday 28 March
Glossary of Etching: Printmaking Demonstrations
Spring: March 2020 CANCELLED due to Covid19
Free to attend – drop-in
Bronwen Sleigh and Eunice Routledge are two of the three artists who have been commissioned to produce new works for our Glossary of Etching exhibitions. We are pleased to say that both artists will be doing printing demonstrations during our Spring Open Studios event on 28 March at Northern Print.
Bronwen Sleigh Demonstration 11am-1pm
Glasgow-based Bronwen Sleigh will be demonstrating how she creates her beautiful etchings. Bronwen will be using two different plates to make a print so it’s a good opportunity to learn about the use of colour and registration. Speak with the artist about her work and browse through a wider selection of her prints which are not part of the exhibition.
Eunice Routledge Demonstration 2-4pm
County Durham-based Eunice Routledge has been making prints for many years. The stunning prints that she has created for the Glossary of Etching exhibition are intricate with very fine detail. For one of her prints, Eunice has etched over 200 individually shaped plates which have then inked up one-by-one and placed in position on the press bed before being printed. In another piece on show, she has printed finely etched plates on to Japanese paper which has been torn into shaped long strips and then woven together to produce the final work. Come along and speak to the artist about her work and find out how she prints her intricate pieces.
