Upcoming Workshops - 2017  
  
 Monotype - Wed Oct 4th
 
 Creators Artspace Wodonga  
   

Often referred to as ‘painterly’ printmaking, monotype is a type of print made by drawing or painting with ink on a smooth surface. The image is then transferred to paper using a press. Unlike other printmaking techniques, the resulting image is a ‘one off’ that cannot be repeated. Best known for rich tones and spontaneous mark making, monotype is an easy to explore medium requiring no previous printmaking experience.  This one day workshop will give a thorough introduction to a number of ways to use monotype including black and white 'maner noir' and multi colour direct transfer methods.  For details and bookings see: https://www.trybooking.com/book/event?eid=320541&

 

Wood Engraving - Oct 7 & 14 (two Saturdays)

 
 Megalo Print Studio Canberra
   

WOOD ENGRAVING is a relief printing technique where the hard end grain of wood is used for engraving an image, rather than the softer side grain used in woodcuts. Wood engraving was traditionally used for illustrations in books and can achieve a fine clean line. In this course you will be taught how to prepare your wood block, use engraving tools to make a range of marks, and print your image.

Printmaking Workshops for your organisation  
I love the opportunity to share my knowledge in a range of printmaking techniques, while at the same time meeting other artists and visiting new places. So if you are part of an arts organisation or group and are interested in running printmaking workshops, then get in touch and I can probably tailor something to suit.  I have run a lot of different workshops in the past, including lino cut, woodcut, wood engraving, etching and drypoint, collograph and monotype.  Some workshops can be run without a press, and I also have a small portable press that I use for workshops, so they can even be run in a space not equiped as a studio.
