About this Event

Description

Printmaking is a less common but wonderful creative techinique. In this class you will be given the opportunity to explore the ins and outs of printmaking in a step by step manner. You will build confidence, skills and the knowledge to complete your own self directed projects at home.

To start with, the class will be introduced to the various techniques in this medium (relief printing, reduction printing, intaglio, silk screen, monoprinting, etc.). This workshop perfectly ties together demonstrations with hands on activities to give you an all round understanding of the principals involved and their practical applications. A broad range of printing types will be covered and time permitting, you will have the opportunity to try a few.

For your first activity, you will have the opportunity to design and create a lino block. Once you have finished the carving process you will make your very own print. This can be a unique print or a repeatable series.

Once this activity is complete Maryika will guide you into your next activity based on the class interest and time remaining.

About the Tutor: Maryika Welter

Making art is a lifelong apprenticeship, fulfilling, fun and frustrating.

Experimenting and playing with different mediums has always been part of my Arts practice. From painting, print making, acrylics, fabrics, oils, water colour, pastels, mixed media, wall murals, commissions to 3 dimensional assemblages.

Curiosity drives me to discover the joy and excitement of the creative process, mostly through painting. Often the result is something unexpected or something that may be familiar or impressionistic. Colour, texture, collage and design are all part of the exploration process.

One of my disciplines is figurative life drawing. It is about really looking and seeing and gives me the freedom to express a form within a very limited time frame.

Workshop facilitating is how I get to share information. With a hands on approach through demonstrating techniques, product knowledge and practical application we can all develop and build skills that support our own individual style. There is so much joy in seeing participants grow and develop their very own visual language.

My Arts background experience and involvements comes from formal education in art colleges, residencies, workshops, judging art shows, community involvement on committees, curator, volunteer work, mental health industry, commercial ventures, cooperatives, public speaking and through exhibiting nationally and internationally.
