with Elizabeth Swift

Elizabeth Swift – Felting Workshops

Elizabeth runs workshops throughout the year in her home in New Mills, Derbyshire.

Workshops run from 10 am until 3.30 pm on Tuesdays and Sundays and combine both techniques of wet felting and needle felting to produce a substantial piece of two dimensional work fit for framing.

A wealth of inspiration is provided on the day although participants are encouraged to bring some images that either inspire or mean something to them.

The cost of each session is £55 which includes hot drinks and homemade cakes (please bring your own lunch).

The aim of the workshop is to learn techniques and gain confidence in a relaxed, fun environment and to go home with a piece of work you are proud of.

Shorter workshops are also available in the afternoons on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays, from 1.30pm until 4pm to make felted bookmarks, hearts, cards or needle felted pictures. The cost for these sessions is £35. Hot drinks and homemade cakes are included.

All workshops are suitable for beginners and those with some experience.

Please email or telephone Elizabeth for dates and further information.

Collagraph & Drypoint Printmaking course with Joanna Allen

Day 1:  July 1st   Plate making

The first session is spent mostly plate making, with an introduction to the collagraph process. A collagraph printing ‘plate ‘is made by gluing thin textured materials, or applying liquid materials, to a rigid surface and then ink is applied to the surface and transferred onto paper using a press. I will demonstrate how to create a collagraph ‘plate’ then the rest of the day will be spent making plate or plates, depending how prolific you are!

We will look at examples, discuss suitable collagraph materials. If weather permits we will also spend 40 mins outside drawing local architecture and landscape, to create drypoint plates. Otherwise we can work from photos and images that I can provide, or you are welcome to bring your own reference material. I can shellac your plates at the end of the session so they will be ready to print next week.

Day 2: July 8th.  Printmaking

The second session we will be looking at examples of inking techniques for both collagraph and drypoint. I will demonstrate to ink a plate using oil based inks (Cranfield and Caligo safewash inks) and scrim/soft polycotton muslin.

We will then spend the rest of the day printing from our plates using a range of colour palettes to create different moods. I will also demonstrate how to use Chine Colle techniques to enhance our prints.

What to bring

A deposit of £35 is necessary to secure your place. Numbers limited to 14.
