Free Wood-cutting and Pigment Workshops This Monday

somewhereto_ has teamed up with WoodWorks to provide workshops for 16-25 year olds in the Fife area, giving participants the chance to learn about woodland culture, engage in craft skills and turn creative ideas into practical skills. Participants can expect a day of woodland-based workshops focused on exploring the journey of raw material to product, where they will get the chance to immerse in and reconnect with the natural world, establish their own woods-based skills, and realise their potential by adding value to Scotland’s woodland resources.

What: Pigment & Woodcut printing session

When: Monday 5th October 2015

Workshop Leader: Fionnuala McGowan, Mobile Print Studio (MPS)

Creating pigments from raw materials (10:30am – 2pm)

This will involve the participants foraging for natural materials that can be ground up and mixed with screenprinting medium to create a pigment to print with. They will then create paper stencils to print with, drawing inspiration from the forest environment.

Creating woodcuts from found wood (3:30pm – 6pm)

This will involve the participants foraging for dry wood to carve into with woodcutting tools, in order to create a series of site-specific woodcut prints and sculptural objects. The group will also produce Collagraphs by collecting textural materials from around the forest and sticking them onto cardboard plates to then ink up and print with.
