Printmaking Workshop: Nature’s Fingerprints with Artist Pippa Pixley
28 Jun 2021
Saturday 3 July, 10am-4pm
The Holburne Museum
Join Pippa in a Nature’s Fingerprints Printmaking Workshop to learn how to make your own water-floated concentric monoprints using natural & sustainable materials.
In this exciting monoprinting workshop we will be floating naturally derived inks on a bath of water: a mesmerizing process that creates swishing and swirling shapes and patterns reminiscent of the concentric rings that form within the structure of a tree as it grows through a cycle of seasons. Each print we transfer onto the specially prepared papers will be as unique as a fingerprint, an image with it’s own character and history, just as each fingerprint is unique and has its own story to tell. Pippa will share the history and secrets of this ancient craft as well as stories about the trees that inspire her work; what they can teach us about our climate and our world.
