Bamboo Printing with Water-based Ink

Bamboo Printing with Water-based Ink

With Ray Stoddart and Leela Bhai

Next Available: Wed, 10 Jul 10:00AM (NZST)
4 hours 30 minutes


Join us for a fun hands-on printing workshop where children will create their own series of bamboo sheath prints inspired by the natural environment.

Led by local practicing artist Ray Stoddart and experienced arts tutor Leela Bhai, children will be guided to develop a series of observational drawings learning how to capture the natural beauty of the environment. These drawings will then serve as the inspiration for our next step.

Following the pioneering bamboo print technique of famous New Zealand painter and printmaker Stanley Palmer, Ray and Leela will demonstrate how to transfer our sketches onto unique handmade bamboo sheath plates to produce a print series, using water-based ink and a printing press.

This workshop will be tailored to the students' individual skill levels, providing ample opportunity for each child to create multiple prints and explore their creativity to the fullest.
