Relief Printing workshop with Adrian Barron, April 13th 10am-4pm:


Adrian Barron will be coming to ROAR to run a Relief Printing workshop on Saturday April 13th, 10am-4pm. Adrian will teach you how make relief prints from a variety of materials, using an assortment of tools, to cut and design images. These images will be printed onto paper to create a unique print.

Students will be required to bring a selection of images, such as photographs or pictures from magazines/books, and these will be used as the starting point for your pieces. You will be able to take the skills you have learnt in the workshop and use them at home!

Adrian Barron is an artist who has been making prints for over 30 years. He has taught at many colleges and universities such as Central St Martins, Byam Shaw School of Art and E.A.A. Estonia. He currently teaches at the Working Mens College in London. He has won awards for printmaking and exhibits both nationally and internationally.

The price for the whole day will be £35, which will cover the teaching and equipment. ROAR is only a 6 minute walk from Rotherham train station and there is free parking on Forge Island S60 1QE.

We will be working with oil-based ink, so please wear appropriate clothing for this sort of activity!
