Tetra Pak printing offers a wonderfully versatile introduction to Intaglio and Collagraph printing processes, perfect for beginners and experienced printmakers alike. Through cutting, scoring and peeling the plate you will produce some fabulous effects, and with the focus being on experimentation and play this will ultimately result in some fantastic printed outcomes. Using recycled juice, milk and soup cartons; this creative printing process is an exciting way forward to more sustainable printing.
Your tutor: Lisa Stubbs
Lisa works in-between her home studio in the beautiful hills of the Holme valley and the print rooms here at WYPW. She particularly loves screen printing as a process and experimenting with textures, building images up in layers of colour however recently she has been creating paper stencil mono-prints, loving the organic nature of the process and the happy (accidents) surprises that occur in the final reveal! Find out more about Lisa via her website.
Beginners welcome as well as experienced printmakers to inform and develop their existing practice. Also great for Teachers / Educators as this process translates really well for classroom settings where a press is available.
All course prices include basic materials such as inks, paper, tools and equipment.
