In this workshop, participants will explore the process of non-toxic etching, and discover how to inscribe images (Intaglio) onto an aluminium plate to create a basic linear image. From this, selected areas of the images can be blocked off with a bitumen resist. With a light application of paint spray on the exposed area of the plate, a background texture can be created.
The aluminium plate size available for these activities will be 15cm x 15cm for creating images on fine art printing papers that measure 20cm x 20cm.
Participants are encouraged to supply their own ideas, drawings, or images that could be useful for their intended prints, and rubber gloves. These items will be available for purchase on the day from the ArtWorld Studio Gallery Shop.
In compliance with Workshop Health & Safety regulations, all participants must bring their own aprons and wear closed-in shoes.
Tea and coffee will be provided.
ABOUT THE WORKSHOP TUTOR
Judith Rosenberg has a B.A. in Fine Arts from Leeds College of Art (UK) majoring in painting with printing as an elective. In 1989, she started printmaking at Studio One, Canberra, and found that etching was the medium closest to her daily drawing practice and to her heart. She has since made printmaking her main arts practice. Since 1989, she has had over 20 solo print exhibitions and participated in many more. Over the last decade she has facilitated 10 print (etching) workshops. These were mainly through regional galleries in Queensland, which have produced many interesting works and been a lot of fun.
