Join us for this fun short class in our beautiful and bright Printmaking Studio in Collingwood. In this class you will learn how to ink up and press your botanical specimens in this 2 hour morning workshop 10:00am -12:00pm.
Create a stunning Botanically inspired masterpiece in our creative atmosphere small size workshops. Class sizes are kept to a maximum of four students so you can enjoy the lovely studio surroundings and get the most from your instructor and experience. .
You do not need drawing skills for this technique as you will use natural foliage that you bring with you on the day to create your masterpiece.
Please don't forget to bring your foliage ready to go before your workshop. Any leaves or soft stems will do just ensure they are fairly flat (to be able to go through the printing press) clean and not too dry or they may crack during pressing.
Each print will be on A3 size professional Italian Fabriano Rosaspina paper to produce a 3 colour design. You should be able to achieve 3 prints during the class time. All prints are carefully packaged so you can take them home at the end of your class.
Tea, water and coffee will be provided as you work, but please feel free to also bring your own snacks.
Our workshops are suitable for complete beginners to printmaking as well as those with experience. Our workshops are recommend for students aged 12 and over.
Our environmental commitment. Jax studio is committed to eco friendly printmaking processes. We use ‘Charbonnel Aqua Wash’ ink which has the same quality, pigment concentration, light fastness and permanence as traditional solvent based inks and it can be hand coloured when completely dry. The difference with this ink is that it is non-toxic and washes up safely with soap and water so it’s ideal for those who are sensitive to the traditional solvents used in printmaking and is much less harmful to the environment.
- How to turn your foliage into a stunning print.
- How to use the printing press. Will also show you how to achieve similar results without a press.
- 3 x A3 size prints on Italian printmaking paper.
- Your beautiful handcrafted prints to take home with you.
Parking is usually available in the side streets off Johnston Street, just please take note of any restrictions.
- Please bring with you the foliage you would like to print. The flatter and softer the better.
Aprons will be provided but it's best to wear comfortable clothes you don't mind the possibility of getting ink on and closed-toe shoes.
All skill levels are catered for. This class is excellent for beginners as well as those with previous printmaking experience. Suitable for students 12 years and over.
Please do not attend if you are feeling unwell. If your booked class is cancelled due to lockdown restrictions your fee will be refunded.
