Weekend Course in Book Binding, Cyanotype and Monoprint at Limerick Printmakers

This exciting multi-method weekend course for all levels including beginners gives participants an opportunity to explore & combine 3 different methods in 1 weekend. Suzannah O’ Reilly will teach 2 forms of bookmaking, with participants making both a basic accordion book & a sewn pamphlet. Participants will make prints over the course of the weekend to include in their books & are also encouraged to bring any drawings and prints they have made previously.

Cyanotypes are made as the result of a particular photographic printing process, notable as it produces eye-catching blue images. LP will introduce the group to the cyanotype process used to create ‘blueprints’. Drawings on perspex, thin patterned materials such as lace, or objects such as leaves/plants, feathers, plastic bags, & everyday items can be used to create striking high contrast images in a range of blue tones.

Monoprints are made by inking up a plate & applying ink to its surface. The entire plate can be inked up with colours & worked back into or ink can be applied to individual sections to create the desired image. A range of tools can be used to create different textures & mark-making e.g. rags, paintbrushes, wire, feathers etc.
Monoprints support a great deal of personal mark-making & the creation of painterly images. This process supports experimentation without requiring high technical knowledge.

All materials included.

Participants will learn a variety of skills with full support of LP tutor Suzannah O’ Reilly and will create a selection of work over the weekend. Suzannah O’ Reilly is a hugely prolific artist, printmaker and tutor. She is a co-director of Parallel Editions in Limerick.
