Workshop: Exploring Printmaking with Minette Dogilewski


Minette workshop

“If you can ink it you can print it” (Anne Desmet, RA, editor of Printmaking Today)

Don’t miss out on this unique opportunity to explore creative printmaking techniques at Carisbrooke Castle Museum. Working with artist Minette Dogilewski you’ll spend the day in the museum’s medieval great hall exploring printing textures through monoprinting, frottage and silk screen printing.

Monoprinting – an impression printed from a printable block, such as a lino block, but printed in such a way that only one of its kind exists. Frottage – technique of rubbing textures of various surfaces through a piece of paper; brass rubbing is an example of this technique.

Silk screen printing – somewhat different from other printmaking processes, the print is made through an intermediary surface – the screen mesh – screenprints are formed by various kinds of stencilling techniques.

With a small group, demonstrations and one to one instruction you’ll have the opportunity to experiment and develop your ideas using these printmaking techniques. The emphasis will be on exploration, discovery, perhaps learning new skills and having fun.
