TRUE GRIT – 2 day Drypoint, Collage and Monopoint workshop with Bronwyn Rees

April 17 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

- $200

TRUE GRIT – 2 DAY DRYPOINT, COLLAGE AND MONOPRINT WORKSHOP WITH BRONWYN REES – APRIL 16/17 at Bittondi Printmakers Association Studio
10am – 4pm
Non-members: $200. Members: $180.
Maximum numbers: 10
Deadline for receiving expressions of interest in the workshop: April 6
As the name suggests, this will be a workshop involving grit – not personality wise (although that always helps!) but in terms of sand and dirt and gravel and sandpaper – and a variety of adhesives and mediums to hold it all together.
We make plates out of plastic, which is marvellously versatile. Through my experimentation in the last year I have discovered ingenious ways to make a fascinating print surface. We draw directly onto the plate and work fast and furious from there.
Once our plates have dried we will see how many ways we can print them – depending on the knowledge the class already has we can also include chine collé, à la poupée, and multi plate printing.
Two days of gentle, relaxing creation or a festival of fast and furious – it’s completely up to you.
(and by the way, most of my most ingenious ideas have come from you, the students. That’s the best reason I can think of to teach!)
