Workshop: Potato Printing Dogs with Sally Muir
Sat 7 March 2020 | 2:30 pm - 4:30 pmReserve Space
Following the great success of this workshop with renowned artist Sally Muir in the Summer 2019, she will be returning to host another in the art of potato printing – all in the name of DOG.
This relaxed workshop will include carving you’re own potato stencil surrounded by our incredible One Night Only Art Exhibition. We would recommend bringing a photo of your gorgeous dog to copy or dogs welcome of course! Then learning the best techniques to paint your carved creation to produce your own unique designs.
Please reserve you’re space to guarantee a place and avoid disappointment! On average it takes about 30-45 mins to create one carving & print.
Meet the Artist
Artist Sally Muir is based in Bath, UK and is a prodigious portrait painter of dogs. Other subjects include human portraits and landscapes, as well as the occasional rodent and bird. For years Muir focused on her knitwear business Muir & Osborne as both a designer and author. With her partner Joanna Osborne, they have published seven knitting pattern books that include Pet Heaven, The Animal Accessory Bible, Best in Show, Knit Your Own Dog, (also Cat, Pet, Zoo, Farm and Dinosaur) and the children’s book Patch’s Grand Dog Show.
Ms. Muir returned to university as a mature student with a concentration on Fine Art. Children’s portraits gave way to dog portraits as is evidenced in her 365 Facebook dog-fest “A Dog A Day”. A Dog A Day book based on the series with 365 artworks of dogs — all shapes, sizes, breeds and mixes — is available through Amazon. Anthropologie, the clothing and décor store has commissioned Muir to create dishes, pillows, wall paper and tea towels. A recipient of many awards, Muir’s work appears regularly in galleries. She welcomes and enjoys commission work — dogs and humans alike.
