Wild Printmaking // Metsik graafika

posted in: Töötoad | 0

From 25 to 26 July we would love to welcome you to a wild etching course led by printmaker and PhD researcher Sarah Epping. But what exactly is wild etching?

🌿 Traditional printmaking is done by applying acid-resistant beeswax to metal and scratching or removing the image. This is then ‘etched’ in acid or an environmentally friendly alternative. Soft natural elements such as flower petals, leaves and blades of grass can be imprinted on top of the etching plate and add texture, pattern and natural forms to this multi-disciplinary printmaking technique. Students can combine natural elements with drawings, words, and abstractions to create unique printed compositions. The effect shall be a stunning biological illustration of natural elements of Estonian nature. Each student will be able to print a number of designs and to learn the classic etching process from start to finish.

🙋‍♀️ The two-day course will be led by printmaker and PhD researcher Sarah Epping. An award-winning printmaker, she runs the artist-lead gallery and print studio Ctrl-Print in Wrocław. She has participated in over forty international exhibitions, received distinctions in two national competitions. Her graphics have been acquired by the Museum of Chinese Graphic Arts in China, Mark Arts Foundation in the USA and the Graphic Arts Museums in Poznań and Łódź. Her work looks at the impact of man on our planet and the balance between the destruction and beauty of ecological destruction.

👩‍🎓 Each student shall have basic knowledge of the etching and printing process by the end of the workshop. Each student shall create 3 black and white prints of their completed composition on A4 paper. At the end of the workshop, the student shall be able to take their 2 prints and plate home and leave 1 print for the archives.

25. ja 26. juulil ootame teid TYPAsse kahepäevasele sügavtrükikursusele, mida juhendab graafik ja trükikunstiuurija Sarah Epping.

🌿 Kursusel õpitakse looduslike vahenditega ‘söövitamist’ ja söövitatud trükiplaadiga trükkimist. Trükiplaadile võib tekstuuri või mustrite loomiseks lisada lilleõisi, lehti ja muud loodusest leitavat. Kuruse lõpuks valmivad igal osalejal multidistsiplinaarses tehnikas tõmmised, millel on kujutatud Eesti looduse elemente.

🙋‍♀️ Kursust juhendab Sarah Epping, kes on võitnud erinevaid graafikaauhindu, osalenud enam kui 40 näitusel ja juhib galerii-trükistuudiot Ctrl-Print. Tema töödel on kujutatud inimese mõju planeedile ning tasakaalu looduse hävitamise ja ökoloogilise hävimise vahel.

👩‍🎓 Kursuselt saavad osalejad algteadmised söövitamise ja trükiprotsessi kohta. Iga osaleja trükib kolm must-valget tõmmist oma valmistatud trükiplaadiga A4-suuruses paberile. Kaks tõmmist ja plaat jäävad valmistajale, üks tõmmis TYPA arhiivi.
