In this 8-week Term 2 series, directed by regional Victorian master printer Diana Orinda Burns, participants will learn the medium of collagraph printing and develop the printmaking skills required to hire and work independently at the Castlemaine Press.
Collagraphy is a versatile printing process using carved lines and/or collaged materials on a card base to create a printing plate. This plate is then inked and run through the printing press to create multiple textured prints on paper.
Offering a safe space to explore your creative calling, these events are ideal for beginner and intermediate printmakers looking to consolidate skills and broaden their technical range. Even if you’ve never made a print before, this is your doorway to endless exploration and fun!
Diana has produced printed works for Indigenous Western Desert artists, Archibald finalists and John Olsen, while her own work is held in major national and international art galleries including the National Gallery of Australia.
Dates are Saturday April 30 and May 7, 14, 21,28 and June 4,18, 25. There is no class on Saturday June 11 (Queen’s birthday weekend).
Bookings can be made at eventbrite until ticket sales close and by contacting the Press by email there after. Contact the Press via email for further details!
