There are still a few places are left if you are interested in a 1-day Non Toxic Printmaking Workshop
from 10am-4pm on Saturday 10 May at Wharepuke Print Studio in Kerikeri.
Taught by Mark Graver, MA Printmaking (Camberwell College of Arts, London),
author of the A&C Black Handbook Non-Toxic Printmaking
and founder of the Wharepuke Print Studio.
The workshop will cover acrylic resist etching with copper or aluminium. You can decide on the day.
Non-toxic, acrylic resist etching uses no harmful acids or solvents, the inks are water based,
resists are acrylic co-polymers and etching takes place in metal salt solutions.
This course will cover plate preparation, applying resists, etching with metal salt solutions,
safely removing resists, as well as inking and printing with Akua water-based inks.
No experience necessary and all materials will be provided, including tea and coffee.
You might want to bring your own lunch, but there is also a cafe on site.
Cost for the workshop is $130.
