A workshop exploring the surface and textures of objects within a still life composition.

The class will be given various tonal papers and encouraged to experiment with monoprinting as a means of mark-making, rolling the ink directly onto textured surfaces of various object and then transferring this surface impression on to paper. Through a process of tearing, cutting and layering, these textured papers will form a rich bank of collage materials that students will use in the afternoon, in response to a still life installation. Looking at Picasso’s use of abstraction and collage in relation to still life, a playful approach will be encouraged throughout the day, with an emphasis on discovering a new vocabulary of mark-making and unexpected ways of working. Students will finish the day with a collection of exploratory monoprints and a resolved still-life collage.
