Students will spend the first day of this Summer School drawing and gathering information in the fascinating and curious collections of the Museum of Childhood on the Royal Mile.
The newly refurbished museum holds a large number of artefacts from the historical to the retro which will inspire students to explore personal motifs of memory and childhood. Back in the studio, an evocative series of relief prints will be created. Students will look at 18th century printed pamphlets, and artists such as William Nicholson and Paula Rego while learning how to translate their own research into either woodcut or linocut prints using the reduction technique. Making an edition of prints will be covered using both hand-burnishing and the School’s Columbian Press. This course is suitable for both beginners and more experienced printmakers.
