What you'll do

This is a two fold experience beginning with a 15 minute, informative, photographic tour around the historic centre of Cordoba in Andalucia. This city is steeped in a varying history all the way from Roman times and there is much evidence from each period still standing or that has been uncovered. You will take the virtual tour also with the eye of an artist, gleaming inspiration for your workshop.
We will spend the next hour and half approximately, learning how to make a printing block from recycled polystyrene sheet that will give a similar finish as a lino cut, but with much more ease of creating. If it isn't possible to get this type of sheet, we can create a printing block by layering cardboard.
Workshop details.
Step 1 - learn about repeat patterns and how to create them
Step 2 - learn how to transfer your repeat pattern image onto a printing block or cut the shapes you want from cardboard.
Step 3 - learn how to mix colours
Step 4 - learn how to use the printing block and print your image
You can choose to take part and work step by step with me, or just watch, ask questions and work in your own time.
To finish the experience we will continue our virtual trip around Cordoba, taking in more must see sights and learning more about the history of this wonderful city that I am delighted to call home.

I was officially trained as a Jeweller but have been tutoring a great variety of crafts for many years within Community Education and within After Schools projects. I have also previously hosted well received workshops with Airbnb experiences and enjoyed tutoring jewellery making to visitors in Cordoba from many different countries. Andalucia has such a wealth of art to inspire work of different disciplines and has always opened my mind to new designs in my own work. I am also fascinated by the history of this region and Cordoba is steeped in a wealth of it. The wonderfully decorated walls of many a house and flat here drew inspiration for providing this particular workshop as you will see on your virtual tour. I hope this workshop brings a touch of Spain to your artwork and to your home.
