Event description

Description

Cardboard Drypoint and carborundum members only workshop.

I recently attended a workshop at Art Print Residence (artprintresidence.com) at Arenys de Munt near Barcelona in Spain. The workshop was with printmaker Jenny Robinson. (jennyrobinson.com). The technique has been developed by her and refined through her own work and that of her students. Check out these websites for full range of examples of work using the method.

The technique uses cardboard as the substrate, which is coated with a varnish and then worked on with a range of tools, other materials and stencil knives similar to a metal plate. You explore some additions of carborundum to produce intense areas of dark.

Works can be small or large scale and for the most part is a non toxic technique as no acids or turps are required. The substrate prints quite satisfactorily to 10 prints but may do more.

Its real advantage is in cost, especially for large works. I use Charbonnel ink and enlist a variety of wiping techniques to ensure a full range of tones to produce dramatic light and dark.

Textures are not added to the surface as with a collograph and so is a drypoint rather than a collograph.

This is a two day workshop to ensure preparation of plate and some experimentation to occur as well as printing plate on quality papers.

COST = $160 (2 days, materials all included)

Included in the workshop:-

Morning and afternoon tea, a range of plates, varnish, ink, carborundum, medium, paper for printing, tarlatan, gloves, rags, cleaning agent.

You will need to bring a range of tools including ( if you have one) a diamond tip etching tool, other etching tools, roulettes, stencil knife with sharp blade, small range of sandpapers and a folder with tissue paper to take home your prints.

PLEASE WEAR CLOSED IN SHOES.
