EVENING | 6 Weeks

Three Colour Reduction Wood Cuts | All Levels

Ruby Oakley

Tuesdays: 4 August – 8 September, 6.30pm – 8.30pm

This workshop will cover the traditional technique
of creating a multi-colour woodblock print. This consists of carving one woodblock multiple times for each colour, known as a reduction print. We will be working on a larger scale – approximately A3 size (420 x 297mm); to enable more detailed work to be carried out. Students will use the large etching press to print their artwork and produce a small edition. The entire edition must be printed at once since carving destroys the wood incrementally.

FEE: $130

Net-work: Creating a website | All Levels

Shelley Simpson

Wednesdays: 5 August – 9 September, 6.30pm – 8.30pm

As an artist or someone working in a creative field you need a website that will help to promote and sell your work, as well as be an archive. Over the six weeks of the NET-WORK workshop you will identify what your requirements are and build a professional, easy to maintain, low cost website that does what you need it to do. Students will need to bring their own laptop and visual diary.

FEE: $100
