Mixed Media Sketchbook Techniques with Sue Brown 14 and 15 October 2023


The Artist

Sue Brown is an artist who uses printmaking to tell stories.

She is inspired by process as much as nature. Her work springs from the pages of her sketchbooks and she develops carefully researched themes using printmaking processes.

Sue uses her work to explore the relationships we have with our garden visitors; she is fascinated by all things ornithological and entomological. From moths to characterful corvids, Sue describes them with collagraph and paper lithography. Her work is full of expression and often humour.

Printmaking has been Sue’s working process forever. Passionate about promoting the understanding of the artist print and the contemporary use of traditional craft techniques, Sue leads workshops and demonstrations for groups nationally in a wide variety of collagraph and mixed media sketch book processes.

‘I am first and foremost a printmaker and I want everyone to understand that I make original prints and not reproductions.’


The Workshop

This is Sue Brown's signature workshop exploring techniques that make up part of her new book due out in April.

Spend 2 days exploring, ink, paint, bleach and paper lithography (gum arabic transfer printing). Bring a series of black and white laser photocopies to use as your printing plate and form part of a mixed media practie.

Enjoy a weekend of layering, mark making and creating a series of booklets forming a resource for future projects.
