Event description
A course for experienced etchers to extend their knowledge of and approaches to the use of colour in etching

About this Event

Tutor: Patricia Wilson-Adams

Dates: May 1st and 2nd 2021 (Saturday and Sunday)

Time: 9:30am - 4pm (lunch break 30 minutes)

Cost: $280 Non-Members | $260 current NPW Members

Venue: Newcastle Printmakers Workshop, 27 Popran Road, Adamstown

AIM: to extend knowledge of and approaches to the use of colour in etching

NB. Etching and plate making will not be taught in this course, however as the course progresses students may wish to alter their plates to suit various techniques e.g. deep biting. adding more line or aquatint to suit the needs of a particular technique.

TECHNIQUES: a range of approaches will be shown – colour rolls, negative colour rolls, stencil techniques with various materials, shaped plates, traditional two plate printing, also using collographs and other materials, offset printing from lino and wood, monotypes with intaglio, direct drawing techniques, chine collé – to name but a few.

OUTCOMES: It is hoped that each participant will make many prints during the two day workshop so that they will have a valuable reference portfolio and that they will be able to incorporate many of these techniques into future works.

Limited spaces, book early. Experienced printmakers will benefit from this workshop. This course is not suitable for beginners.

What students need to bring: A range of small, previously worked etching/intaglio plates or plates that are suitable for cutting down – images are not important. Old collographs, lino cuts, wood cuts, silk screens with old images on them, old X-ray plate, thin plastics, Caran d’arches water soluble crayons or similar, contact paper, heavy tracing paper, thin paper materials for chine collé. Plenty of quality printing paper, paper for ground sheets etc. All your usual kit for etching – brushes, tools etc. Notebooks. Apron, protective clothing, gloves, closed shoes. Lunch, snacks and a drink.

This course requires a minimum of 5 participants to proceed.

ABOUT THE TUTOR

Patricia Wilson-Adams was brought up on an isolated sheep property in the New England region of New South Wales and it is this environment that has informed her work throughout her life. She has made prints and has been involved in the Fine Arts since she was 15. She attended the National Art School, Sydney and later gained an MFA from the College of Fine Art, University of New South Wales.

She began intensive work in etching as a student at Atelier 17 in Paris and has worked in many print workshops all over the world. She has exhibited both prints and sculpture in many major regional galleries and has been represented in many prize exhibitions, recently winning a prize in Kankaku, Japan and the Burnie Print Prize in 2017. Her most recent artist-in-residency was at Watch this space in Alice Springs in November, 2019.

Patricia Wilson-Adams had a long career as an academic at the University of Newcastle where she taught Printmaking, Drawing and Sculpture electives. She was supervisor to many PhD candidates.

Her work focuses on issues surrounding the environment, cultural landscapes and land usage and she could be best described as being a polyvalent artist. She addresses aspects of Post Minimalism, uses metaphor and revels in the materiality of her work and often references literature. She works in sculpture, installation, print media and artist’s books.
