Dear Member

Thank you for registering for The Makers Studio Central Coast Inc ‘Printmaking Basics – Soft Ground, Found Objects, Botanicals & Pencils on Aluminium’ being held on 31 August 2019. Please find below all the information you need regarding workshop attendance.

Date: 31 August 2019

Time: 10:00 to 16:00hrs

Venue: Building 3 Lions Community Hall, 8 Russell Drysdale St

East Gosford (entrance at the rear of the building)

You will be provided with background information about etching on metal plates before you commence preparation of your first plate. You will also learn the fundamentals of applying soft ground & working with environmentally safe acid. Each participant will be supplied with a small pack that includes:

  • 3 x A5 aluminium plates
  • 1 Sheet of Hahnemuhle 300gsm printmaking paper (if additional paper required it is available for $8 per sheet)
  • Handout on etching on aluminium plates

You will be using:

  • Paint brushes & pencils
  • Tracing paper
  • Drawing bridges
  • Soft ground (a mixture of bitumen + beeswax)
  • Hot plate & brayer
  • Printing presses
  • Tarlatan
  • Aprons & gloves
  • Ink for proofing
  • A range of materials that can be pressed into the soft group e.g. textured paper & fabric, alfoil, dried leaves, sea sponges, feathers (you may like to bring something textured of your own e.g. lace)

The workshop will introduce you to using soft ground on an aluminium plate which will allow a number of applications. You will be able to explore the potential to draw into the soft ground or impress textured materials onto the surface of the plate to create your image.

What you should consider bringing:

  • Ideas for creating the image on your plate
  • Art journal for note taking & storing your artist proof prints
  • Lunch

You will need to wear closed in shoes while working in the studio for work health safety reasons. Morning & afternoon tea will be provided. Looking forward to working with you on 31 August 2019.

If you have any questions prior to coming along to the workshop please don’t hesitate to give me a call (number below).

Warm regards
