Neoprene foam can be used, like all varieties of relief printing, to create multi block coloured prints, reduction prints, coloured fade printing or simple black and white impressions, but in a fraction of the time and cost. Very few specialist equipment is required and foam sizes varies from A5 pieces to long rolls. During this 2-day workshop, you will be introduced to this immediate and flexible form of printing and take home a variety of printed outcomes from the small to the oversized.

Small press publications, rubber stamps and alternative printmaking are the focus of the course tutor, Stephen Fowler’s practice. His zines and artists’ books are held in national collections such as Tate Britain and the Victoria & Albert Museum. Fowler has run collaborative and experiential workshops in drawing and printmaking at the Whitechapel Art Gallery, Birmingham Library, the V&A, Hayward Gallery’s Wide Open School, and Margate’s Turner Contemporary gallery. He is also a Lecturer on Worcester University’s Illustration Degree Course. His book on Rubber Stamping, published by Laurence King is out now.

This course will be held at UWE Bristol’s beautiful Bower Ashton Studios set in the stunning Ashton Court park.
