A Town Lecture entitled Scene Around by Glynn Thomas will be at Museum Street Methodist Church, Ipswich on Thursday 12th March from 1.00pm to 1.50pm.
Etching has been an art form for over 500 years, with more varied techniques created than in any other printmaking method. Glynn touches on some of these processes and explains how he creates his etchings, from initial drawings to the finished print. He will also define what ‘limited edition print’ should mean, but often doesn’t.
Glynn Thomas RE, a Cambridge Art School student in the early 1960s, came to Suffolk to teach Printmaking at the Ipswich Art School, leaving after 11 years to become a full-time artist. He is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Painter/Etchers.
Tea and coffee with biscuits are available. The kettle will be on the hob at 12.30pm. Although admission is free, a retiring collection of £2.00 will be appreciated. This is to defray expenses incurred in hosting the series.
