Explore the three dimensional properties of printmaking using the process of blind relief, to create prints with form and texture. This taster workshop will introduce you to a range of printmaking techniques which can be used to respond to, and interpret, the structure and environment of Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop’s building and surroundings. Using found objects and materials you will explore blind relief printing to create prints with form and texture and then experiment with colour to enhance the images and motifs. You will be encouraged to experiment and test ideas as part of the process.
