The Artist and the Land - French Bay

with Ray Stoddart

Next Available: Sun, 19 Feb 9:00AM (NZDT)
8 hours x 2 Weeks

Description

Legendary artist Stanley Palmer’s scenes portray New Zealand coastlines with themes of colonisation, conservation, humanity and the land.

In this 2-day printing workshop, running consecutive Sunday's, we'll be introduced to Palmer's unique method of bamboo engraving to create our own small print series, inspired by a site visit to French Bay.

Tutor Ray Stoddart will guide us through a series of outdoor observational drawings, sharing how to best capture the natural beauty of the bay and engage with the environment around us. This visual recording will be intertwined with Ray's storytelling and knowledge of the area.

Our sketches will then be transferred onto a hand-made unique bamboo sheath plate to produce our imagery using water-based ink and a printing press.
