Shop

Welcome to our shop. Here you will find original prints, artist books and other items. Each artwork is made and printed by hand using techniques including etching, lithography, woodcut, linocut and monotype. All our stock is limited and reflects our exhibition programme.

All of our work is sold unframed and will be delivered to you rolled in a cardboard postal tube by tracked Royal Mail.

Two thirds of the money from sales goes directly to the artist. One third goes to the studio, making sure we can carry on supporting creative people and print projects.

What will I be doing?

You will finish the course with a small edition of black and white prints, and be qualified to join as a studio member to continue your lithography journey.

On the first day you will learn how to grind a litho stone, then work on a shared test stone, trying out the different drawing materials and ways of making marks. After lunch you will proof the shared test stone and then draw a second stone.

On the second day you will etch, proof and then print a small edition from your drawing. There will be some group, paired time as we have found that this approach works really well in learning lithography- working with a partner you can help each other remember all the steps in the process!

All materials are provided for this course.

 

 

About your tutor

Michelle Avison studied painting at the Slade School of Art in the late 1980s, going on to study Printmaking MA at Wimbledon School of Art where she learnt stone lithography. Michelle is an experienced artist educator committed to sharing her printmaking expertise and ideas.

A very experimental printmaker, Michelle’s approach always puts image first and she is really good at helping students develop compelling images and professional printmaking skills.

What should I bring?

Please bring a black and white image to work from- this could be a pencil, pen or charcoal drawing, a painting or a photograph. You will find it really useful to have a notebook and pencil, and a range of different paintbrushes and markmaking tools.

Please wear good, waterproof shoes as we grind the stones outside and you can get wet feet!

We have a small kitchen with a microwave and fridge, plates, cutlery and mugs. Tea and coffee will be provided. There is a small Tesco’s and a cafe nearby but it is a good idea to bring lunch with you.

We may take photographs or video in the studio whilst you are there, for our website, social media and other studio marketing. We will always make you aware of this activity. Let us know if you don’t wish you or your work to be photographed and/or identified.
