MINI CREATIVE WORKSHOPS IN Espacio Creativo in Almunecar

Mini Workshops held during the exhibition of MINI CUADROS in the Espacio Creativo in Almuñécar

Espacio Creativo is a unique little shop and gallery run by artist Annabel Keatley in the centre of the old town of Almuñécar. It is here where Annabel runs specialised workshops teaching the techniques she herself as an artist uses in her own work. Annabel has a BA Hons in Painting and a Masters in Fine Art from Chelsea School of Art in London. She has been living in Andalucia for over 20 years and exhibits in the UK and in Spain. Her last solo show was in Seville in 2018. She is a painter, papermaker and printmaker. Please see more of Annabels work at www.annabelkeatley.com.

Annabel is an expert in all these techniques, with many years experience. She is naturally patient, optimistic and encouraging, always endlessly experimenting and learning in her own studio practise, and she loves teaching and sharing all that she knows.
All materials are included and are of high quality, professional standard.

What you will learn in the creative workshops

Papermaking

Creative Handmade Paper Workshop

After a short introduction to Annabel, her work and her shop, she will guide you into making your own handmade paper, which you can later use to make your own hand bound book. Annabel will show you how to embed inclusions of Andalusien petals and leaves and seeds into your paper to make beautiful decorative, plantable and functional papers. Annabel has been making paper for many years from locally collected plant fibres and recycling unwanted paper from her studio.

Printmaking – collagraphy

Experimental printmaking workshop. Collagraphy is a non-toxic environmentally safe form of printmaking with more immediate results than etching. We make a collage or draw and carve a design on a surface, glue and ink it up and print it, running it through the etching press. Beautiful results in just one morning, rich colours and unexpected professional looking one off prints.. Also in this class it is possible to make prints on your own handmade papers. Surprisingly fun, exciting and addictive process!
