Monoprinting Workshop at Kenilworth

Kenilworth Celebrates!

Art workshops and other events

28 September to 11 October 2014

Kenilworth Celebrates! is a major festival held annually in Kenilworth, a small town in the Upper Mary Valley on the Sunshine Coast Hinterland about 2 hours drive from central Brisbane.
The Festival starts with an orchestral concert on 28 September (booking required), followed by painting workshops with professional tutors from 29 September to 3 October (bookings required). The Town celebrates with music, poets' breakfast and street entertainment on the weekend of 4/5 October and free art exhibitions run from 4th to the 11th October.

I'm running a 4 day workshop from Monday 29 September to Thursday 2 October.
We will be exploring the printmaking technique of monoprinting using plants, stencils and other found materials to create one-of-a kind and often unexpected images. We'll be printing with my etching press 'Thumper', but also devoting time to printing using homemade gelatine plates. The workshop will cover ghost printing and how to develop layers and complex colour relationships in your prints. The four days of the workshop will allow you to extend yourself creatively and fully resolve prints using your own imagery.

If you're interested in the workshop, please make your booking prior to the end of August, so they can assess whether the workshop has sufficient numbers to go ahead.
