Start the season with Sarah
Artist printmaker Sarah Keast will be giving the first of the society's autumn/winter programme of demonstrations at Gracefield, Dumfries, at 11.30am on Friday October 9, followed by a workshop on October 23.
Sarah's subject is collagraph and monoprinting. She recently undertook a month's residency on Iona and she will talk about this and its effect on her creative processes.
She has a portable printing press and will demonstrate block-making and printing.
Sarah (pictured left) was one of the selectors for the society's annual exhibition. You can see some of her work on her website.
Members need to book for the follow-up workshop (but not for the demonstration).
