Tuesday 23rd May, 7.30pm
The Barn, Kibworth Books
Join us for an evening with printmaker Sam Marshall as she joins us to talk to us about her brilliant new book, Linocut: A Creative Guide to Making Beautiful Prints and her work as an artist.
Sam will be sharing details of her creative process and will be signing and dedicating copies of her book purchased at Kibworth Books.
Sam has been print-making for over 20 years. She originally trained at the Slade School of Fine Art and completed her studies at the Royal Drawing School with an MA diploma in drawing. She was raised in the flat fens of Lincolnshire, lived in London for over 20 years, but now resides in rural Northamptonshire with Miss Marple her mini dachshund where she concentrates on her printmaking, runs print workshops and teaches printmaking at the Royal Drawing School on their foundation programme.
Drawing is at the foundation of all her work and she is heavily influenced by the British aesthetic of artists such as Eric Ravilious, Edward Bawden, Thomas Bewick and 19th century Ceramist William De Morgan.
For many years her work was etching based but recently Sam has been working predominately with linocut enjoying the graphic quality of the line and the colour possibilities that comes with working with multiple blocks.
