I moved out of the studio in Ilfracombe last week and it was made even more strange by the High Street.... eerily empty!

Move forward a week and we are all still in isolation and I am revisiting the images over the last three and half years and thinking wow how much work has been created, thought over, had angst over even but it was all worth it!  The gallery below shows the last sessions but I shall put up more in posts to follow. Missing you guys but we will meet again on the other side! Thanks for being amazing, I've enjoyed every minute and hope you did too! Meanwhile Stay Safe everyone! X

The last two weeks students have been busy with etching, chine collé, monoprint and linocut and works in progress, layering, combining, etc.  Great prints as always.

Last week was the first week back to print and classes are full which is a lovely way to finish on... No dull days here as

great prints abound! Monoprints and Drypoint Etching.

As you may or may not know Folio is going on hold giving me time to re-assess my own practice and get in some more time! I shall have my own studio space up and running hopefully by Spring and will spend time working, updating skills, finding new techniques and publishing a blog of all things printmaking and interesting! 

I have really enjoyed teaching everybody without exception and will miss both seeing everyone day to day and the space in Ilfracombe. However, teaching has overrun the original idea of being able to fund my own studio to concentrate on the development of my work. 'Time' isn't terribly flexible or generous!  The studio will close on 31st March 2020, so it is with some sadness I am announcing the last dates of the courses below:

No mention of ballot boxes here but the votes go to all the fab printmakers who have been to folio and produced beautiful prints throughout 2019.  Here are the last sessions work!  Thank you also everyone who has taken part in the Students Exhibition.  The exhibition runs until 20th December 10:30am  - 4:30am (except 18th December). Hope to see you there!

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year for 2020!

Ending the year on a good note with the private view showcasing the students prints which was well attended and a few sales made too!  The next set of courses will be starting at the end of January.  One last post before 2019 is out then meet you on the other side!

Beginners and Intermediate Print Combined

The choice of two 6-week courses both structured and has a very relaxed atmosphere. It is beneficial for both levels by either watching more experienced printmakers as they work or as a refresher about techniques already learnt by the Intermediates. Techniques include: monoprint, drypoint, chine colle, collagraph and lino cut.
