Course in Digital Printmaking with traditional print techniques (UK)
ArtistJanet Curley Cannon leads a weekend of experimental digital printmaking, printing on to different papers, collages materials, fabrics and applying digital transfers to other surfaces using Ink Aid.
"A digital wet transfer uses pigment based inks, a flat feed inkjet printer, and a pre-coat or digital ground. It is a technique for transferring by hand an inkjet image onto an absorbent surface such as paper, canvas, or plaster. This process gives a softer, slightly broken texture to the image and broadens the types and sizes of surfaces an artist can use. I use inkjet wet transfers throughout my work as it's perfect for re-creating the decomposed urban surface and can be easily combined with other media".
The emphasis will be on exploring and experimenting with digital images using the Epson 7600 large format printer.
