Metal plate drypoints
Master Printmaker Andrew Totman will take the class on a whirlwind tour of the magic of printmaking. This one day class is a chance for the novice or the well travelled artist to dive into the age-old process of metal plate drypoints. Portraiture will be the main inspiration for the day, such as the detailed portraits of Rembrandt and cubist images of Picasso. The class will learn to create the plates and learn how to print in traditional black and white inks as well as try out non-traditional colour usage. All that is needed is an interest to learn more about printmaking from one of Australia’s master printmakers. Please bring an old shirt or apron. All materials are provided.
Sunday 20 May 2012 10:15am – 4:15pm
Mono-prints, drypoints and non-traditional methods
Students will be introduced to a variety of printmaking methods and their history, with the use of monoprints, drypoints and non-traditional methods. The class will use images from the Gallery’s permanent collection for inspiration to create a small portfolio of prints. Students will need a old shirt or apron for the day. All materials provided.
Sunday 19 August 2012 10:15am – 4:15pm
Printmaking takes on many forms and methods. This one-day class will introduce the novice or the well travelled printmaker to the relatively new process of solar plate printing, a non-toxic process that allows artist with a simple set-up to create elaborate and delicate prints. Each student will need to bring one or two photocopies on transparencies to be used as the main image for the process, as well as a old shirt or apron. All other materials provided.
