Tutor: Susan Milne Course fee: £50
This practical workshop led by artist Susan Milne explores the potential of printmaking as a means to reveal the natural beauty of landscape around The Rodd. Using natural found materials and working outside, the day incorporates a range of experimental processes in mixed media combined with printmaking techniques in the broadest sense capturing the essence of this ancient place that was home to Sidney Nolan in his later years. There will be an opportunity to visit Sidney Nolan's studio and an exhibition of his paintings in the Trust's gallery during the day.
This workshop is one of a series of events presented in partnership with IKON, Birmingham as part of the Sidney Nolan Centenary programme. An exhibition of late spray paintings by Sidney Nolan is showing at Ikon until 3rd September.
