Creative blockprinting without a press: Printing with bit and pieces

with local printmaker Christine Toh

Time : 11.15am – 4.15pm

Price : £45 (£39 BDC Friends & concs.)

During this workshop you will create amazing prints without a press using a range of unusual materials and objects as printing blocks: from a water bottle cap to an old found rusty nail or a piece of bubble wrap.

You will also have the opportunity to use already made small wood printing blocks and prepare your own blocks from unusual soft material. You will be able to produce repetitive pattern and /or a work on your own ideas and images. You will take home a set of small finished prints on paper and or fabric and will be able to use and develop the skills learned in the workshop in your own studio or kitchen table. No previous printing skills required, just come with a lot of enthusiasm, a creative spirit and appropriate clothing.

Christine Toh is a multidisciplinary and textile artist working from her studio space at Arena Studios in Liverpool. She is interested in the layering effect of printing techniques and plays with colours. Her work tries to capture the fragility within the elements surrounding us and the traces and marks left behind with the passage of time. Walking around urban or natural landscapes are always sources of inspiration for her.
