The purpose of this workshop is to provide participants an alternative opportunity for self expression through art and the printmaking process. The workshops encourage students to develop their creative ideas using traditional and non traditional techniques. Printmaking usually requires access to a purpose built press and studio, but these
workshops will utilise alternate ways to prepare and print unique pieces of art. The equipment provided is very user friendly and full training and supervision will be provided.
NO PREVIOUS ARTISTIC SKILLS ARE REQUIRED TO COMPLETE THIS WORKSHOP
The ‘Make your Mark’ printmaking workshop introduces participants to some simple printmaking techniques that include a connection to the environment. Through an inclusive hands-on approach and practical learning, the participants will engage in a relief printing process that uses pencils and foam plates. They will then be guided using acetate sheets and water based ink to create mono prints through individual mark making and sourcing materials from the environment. The space created offers a place for the participants to communicate, interact, connect and build relationships. Using a creative free flow approach this workshop is tailored to activate the imagination and inspire. The experience is enjoyable and provides individuals with a fresh energy for creative expression.
