Mill Street Etching
SUMMER ETCHING COURSES AT MILL STREET ETCHING STUDIO ON 30/31 JULY & 26/27 AUGUST 2023
NEXT Course/Workshop on the 30/31 July with Catherine Greenwood will be exploring new ways of using Sugar Lift, Aquatint, Soft Ground Techniques and bringing colour into your prints using the wonderful array of Cranfield and Charbonel etching inks.
The following workshop on the 26/27 August with David Stubbs will focus on the production of colour prints, using multi-plate etching and/or collagraphy. Multi-plate colour etching uses separate plates to carry each colour. These plates are produced and printed in registration so that where colours overlay a full spectrum can be created.
Please email Caro to reserve a place for either of the courses coming up in July and August 2023.
Claire Oxley is excited to be returning to the Courtyard Gallery for the fifth time, with Field and Flower – a collection of fresh, visually stimulating paintings. Claire’s work is distinctive through its colour intensity and rhythmic mark making. Taking inspiration from surrounding landscapes, her starting point is often the passing seasons and wide, changing moods of her East Anglian home.
‘I make paintings that chart and describe the skies, seas, moons, fields, flowers, and foliage of the area: canvases of energy and flux. They are are felt and heard as much as seen, stirring memories and experiences from these vast counties. Unexpected colour combinations stimulate, and bring energy to interior spaces.’ Recently Claire has been exploring abstract forms in flowers, which has proved to be an exciting addition to her portfolio.
Claire lives in Norwich, Norfolk, and studied at the Norwich School of Art, and the Universities of Lancaster and Oxford, reading both art and music. A synaesthete (which, in Claire’s case, means that colour and sound are experienced interchangeably) shifting hues, brushstrokes, and abstract patterns are at the heart of her works.
Claire regularly exhibits in Norfolk and Suffolk, London, and across the UK. Her paintings are bought by global collectors.
Commissions, in a wide variety of sizes, are available.
