Print graphics, instructor Marje Üksine

In two days the participants can choose to make one or several graphic sheets. For introduction, we study the relevant masterpieces made by Evald Okas. In our work we use more simple and handy techniques of classical print graphics. On the first day the participants will prepare one or several printing plates. The second day is spent on printing, using special intaglio colours. The result may resemble a small watercolour painting. Several (and multi-colour) prints can be made from a single plate. Finally the completed work will be signed and taken home. Graphic sheet is a suitable and valuable present!

Water colour and papercutting, instructor Maria-Kristiina Ulas

In this workshop we will combine watercolour and papercutting. Cutting will add precision to the flowing of colours and open endless possibilities for creative interpretation.
The magic of black silhouette paper. The sharpness of cutting and the fluid washes of watercolour. Adding cuts to transparency. Drawing with scissors (Henry Matisse expression for his paper cuts) and painting with brushes.
Papercutting and watercolour are both versatile mediums- combined they will bring unexpected results. We will find themes from the inner and outer reality.
