Drypoint at Barcaldine

I've travelled up to Barcaldine in Central West Queensland this week to work with artist Joanne Taylor and to run some community workshops.  

My first workshop was Drypoint and Mixed Media.  I had a group of 6 keen local artists and we explored drypoint techniques using thin acrylic sheet and simple drypoint etching tools.  Drypoint is an inexpensive and non toxic method of intaglio printing.

I've now got a week of exploring the local area with Joanne as well as setting up her etching press and of course doing some printing.  I've got another workshop at Blackall next weekend.
