Tom Hammick’s – Colour & The Rural Landscape
Drawing, drypoint and woodcut printmaking
After the success of his exhibition ‘Night For Day’ at Rabley in November 2012, artist Tom Hammick returned to the rural Wiltshire countryside to run a colourful and inspiring three-day course. The lucky eight students were given a special insight into Tom’s way of working, along with his inspirations and contextual references. Everyone was encouraged to develop their own ideas and imagery through the exploration of colour and reduction woodcut in a very intuitive and free approach. Every morning began with a talk and slide show of key reference points. Tom selected images and artists to suit the individual students work, which was extremely useful in the development of the final prints
Immersed in a sea of colour, the print room was a hive of activity and with the help of Tom’s assistant, the experienced printmaker Rob White, everybody really got into the swing of things. This course has definitely broken the mould and the painterly way of working with printmaking has liberated the approach of many of the students, and the future looks colourful!
