Make Your Own Mini Print Studio
A PAWA Workshop by Jane Button
Date: Saturday 15th May, 2021
Time: 9.30 am - 2.30 pm
In this workshop Jane will demonstrate how easy it is to construct and use two different types of miniature printing presses. She will not only show the ways in which she was able to convert a kitchen tool into a press but also will demonstrate two methods of printing. You will make and print two plates. The first plate will be an acrylic drypoint that will enable you to make beautiful etchings, direct from your drawings without the use of acid. The second will be a foam plate, which is a very versatile material that will allow you to produce relief prints without using carving tools.
Jane Button is a printmaker and mixed media artist who works from her home studio in Wooroloo. She works in a wide range of printmaking techniques including drypoint, relief, rubber carving and image transfers. She enjoys experimenting with the various ways in which the techniques can be combined, and her images are often then incorporated into small mixed media or 3D pieces.
You will need to bring:
· ∆ Etching tools if you have your own
· ∆ Image ideas suitable for 8x10cm plate
· ∆ Apron
· ∆ Any special paper you want to use (paper for experimentation will be supplied)
The registration fee for this member only event is $72
