Layering Print Workshop, 23-25 Jan, Auckland

Whitecliffe College of Art & Design is offering a 3-day printmaking course
called Printmaking - Layering, as part of their Summer Workshop programmes.
The course will be on 23-25 January, 9.30am-4pm,
and will be tutored by Ruby Oakley.

This 3-day workshop introduces students to four different methods of printmaking.
The focus will be on layering of prints either together (one on top of another)
or multiple printing of individual plates to create a variety of finished images.
Layering is a fabulous technique to create pattern, texture and depth.
The results are usually dynamic and wouldn’t be possible using just one process.

The four processes used are gelatine plate monoprinting
(which does not need a press so printing can continue at home),
drypoint etching on plastic, collagraph and pronto (a type of paper lithography).

Tuition will cover each process one at a time
so that students are able to understand how each process works individually.
The course will explore how to create an image through layering these processes together
and students will be able to independently produce more plates and prints.

The course is aimed at beginners and those with some experience.
Cost $285 (plus a $44 material fee to cover the cost of ALL materials, paid directly to the tutor)
