Caloundra Workshops

I've just facilitated 2 days of monoprinting workshops at Caloundra Regional Gallery.  I had the delightful task of introducing 19 enthusiastic ladies to the magic of monotypes.  The days were filled with exclamations of 'ooohh' and 'aaahh' as the prints were revealed off my travelling press, 'Thumper'. 

Thanks again to my Mum Jan who toiled for hours in charge of 'Thumper' to ensure good press 'posture' and behaviour.  She's such an old hand at it nowadays she gives plenty of printing advice as well!

And also a big thank you to Cathy Money, in charge of Public Programs at the Gallery, who organised the workshops (and took the photos).  And to those on the waiting list who missed out - don't worry I'll be back!

My next workshop is in Sydney in May at Primrose Paper Arts - an intensive 2 day workshop aimed at creativity and developing imagery using monotypes.
