Intensive Linocut Printmaking Workshop – with Sally Caston
12 November @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
Inspired by the exhibition of works by Barbara Hanrahan Bee-stung lips.
Join Adelaide-based artist Sally Caston as you explore Hanrahan’s techniques, understand her processes and then create artwork inspired by the exhibition.
In this hands-on workshop, you will learn how to design, carve and print a Lino block. Working solvent-free, you will develop a small body of work and take home your lino block, a collection of prints and the skills to carve and print at home.
Working in a studio environment across the day you will learn practical relief printing and linocut techniques, including Lino block preparation, cutting techniques, paper handling, and how to use a press. Across the afternoon session, you will be developing a second colour or plate to print with the block you prepared in the morning session.
All the while discussing different approaches to this technique adopted by a range of artists, Sally will highlight ways you can realise your own creative ideas using the simple yet powerful medium of linocuts.
You are welcome to bring along 1 x image: 10 x 10 cm. There will also be time in class to develop your imagery.
What to bring:
*Notebook and pen for jotting down information
*Some references i.e., photos, drawings, ideas.
All other materials supplied.
