Printmaking Workshop - An introduction to dry point etching
At this two day workshop I aim to introduce the practise of drypoint etching on plexiglass, explore mark making and how it relates to etching and assist you in pulling two monochromatic A4 prints. The workshops run over two Saturdays. Your first plate will be developed in class and you will then have time between the two workshops to etch your second plate at home. We will print the plates on the press at workshop two. Workshop dates for 2018 - 2019 to be confirmed.

The media are charcoal, pen and ink and acrylic paint. For 2018, the course will be offered into 2 components; War machine Drawing and War Machine Painting each taking 2 full Saturdays. Module 1 will take place on 5 April and 19 April. Module 2 dates to be confirmed. Please contact Tracy should you want to join this workshop.

Holiday Art Club
The Holiday Art Club has been running for 17 years and is always a huge success. The club runs for 5 days in the December school holiday for children aged 6 - 12. Drop off your children at 8:30am and we’ll keep them fabulously busy doing creative things at the art studio until you collect them at 1:00pm. Each day the children will make and bring home one or more artworks related to a well known visual artist. The proposed dates for the 2018 Holiday Art Club are Friday 14 December - Thursday 20 December (weekends excluded). Dates will be confirmed closer to the workshop.
