Woodcut printing: historic buildings
Saturday 22 July 2017
Learn about the history of this craft, use the Museum site as inspiration for your own design, transfer this into a woodblock, practice mark making techniques and print it to create your own image.
Will Dyke studied at Harrow College, University of Westminster. He has also benefited from further tuition at West Dean College. He prints on an old Cropper Charlton press, producing limited edition prints, using the methods of wood cut and lino cut. Much of his artwork is inspired by rural life and history. Many images are from studies he has made of exhibits in the Weald & Downland Museum, Singleton.
£65 per person, to include tuition, teas and coffees. The Museum café will be open or you can bring a packed lunch.
All materials will be included for the course but if you wish to buy further materials from the tutor this will be possible.
The Weald & Downland Living Museum has over 45 historic building exhibits. It is also home to the award winning and innovative Downland Gridshell, which houses a conservation workshop and artefact store, and is also used for many practical courses. The Museum runs a full programme of courses in historic building conservation and traditional rural trades and crafts, along with MSc programmes in Building Conservation and Timber Building Conservation validated by the University of York.
