One Day Workshop Synopsis - In Pursuit of: Low Relief Screen Printing
Workshop Outcomes of Pauline Cosgrove

The one day "In Pursuit of: Low Relief Screen Printing (LRSP) Workshop" was held at Art Quill Studio in Arcadia Vale, NSW, Australia on the 7th August 2017.

In this one day workshop Pauline Cosgrove learnt the tutor’s signature LRSP technique using low relief textured items in tandem with a silkscreen. The technique produces one print with each pass that results in a mono print series of prints. The images have a lovely organic, textural quality and lend themselves to interesting color combinations.

Some prior experience using a silkscreen was recommended for this class. Below are workshop outputs created by Pauline Cosgrove.


Pauline's Artist Statement
I'm a "textile tragic" from way back. After completing courses in screen-printing, colour and design in the 1980s and running a small screen-printing business, I now have the luxury to explore the many different disciplines involved in textile embellishment. I've pinched, scrunched, wrapped, tied and dyed and then repeated the process. I've hand-painted, discharged, overprinted and stamped and I never cease to be amazed at the unexpected results - I just love that surprise element!

My inspiration comes from the numerous patterns, textures and beautiful organic shapes I find in nature. I'm also drawn to the many and varied possibilities of color - layering, mixing and overprinting to create unique textile works.
