Introduction

Card printing is a simple inexpensive method of printmaking that can be used alone to make simple designs/images or combined with other printmaking or painting processes. The basic nature of this printmaking process allows it to be easily adapted and developed to create a range of results. It can be used as a bridge between drawing and printmaking.

RABLEY PRINTMAKERS TABLE TOP PRINTING PROJECTS

Hi Printmakers

In the spirit of keeping connected, happy and making the team at RABLEY DRAWING CENTRE Amy Jane Blackhall, Nik Pollard and Meryl Ainslie have put together a plan!

We have devised 6 Tabletop Print Projects for our regular Rabley Printmakers and we thought it would be welcomed to make these live and free to everyone! – so follow this blog and our instagram #rableydrawingcentre to keep posted and connected!

There will be a new project each Monday for the next six weeks. We hope that you will enjoy them, they are just for fun and to introduce a few new ideas to keep your practice fresh and lively! We have had fantastic support from Sara Lee, Katherine Jones and Sadie Tierney, who are all going to make contributions over the coming weeks.

Each workshop will include an introduction, materials, demonstration videos, suppliers links. Printmakers will already have many items in the studio or kitchen!

London Original Print Fair 2019 – MONOPRINTS – Katherine Jones

http://www.rableydrawingcentre.com

RABLEY GALLERY AT THE LONDON ORIGINAL PRINT FAIR 2019
25th – 28th April 2019
STAND 34

During the coming weeks I will be highlighting the artists and the monoprints we will be exhibiting at the London Original Print Fair in April 2019. For more information about the work of Katherine Jones or visiting the London Original Print Fair please contact the gallery  – email info@rableygallery.com  

Rabley Gallery will be exhibiting new works focusing on monoprints. The quality of these prints brings a fresh vibe to the artworks and offers a more unique and experimental field of play for the collector and for the artist as they develop series of imagery. The monoprint, unlike the monotype, is one of a series, so it is not completely unique. Monoprints are often thought of as variations on one theme.
