Watercolour Workshop

with Gillian Hook

 

New dates:  15 & 16 January 2022

9am - 4pm

Cost:   $210 BDAS Members     $240 non-members  - class full

Watercolour painting has always been a special medium for Gillian – the beautiful work of Andrew Wyeth, John Singer Sargent and David Taylor providing a constant source of inspiration.

 

She enjoys sharing the magic of this medium with others, ensuring students can work at their own particular level - rediscover the excitement of the ”flow” & create fresh and vibrant work.

 

In this workshop students can explore some new innovative techniques using mixed media with watercolour, and fully explore the dynamic effects of light and darks to make paintings “sing”. 

 

Gillian has been exhibiting and teaching for 45 years and holds a B.A.VA. Dip Ed.

Viscosity Colour Printing

& Aluminium Etching 

Workshop 

with Seraphina Martin

New dates:

9 & 10 April 2022

9am - 4pm

Cost:   $210 BDAS Members     $240 non-members  

Solar plate etching is a non toxic form of etching.

A photosensitive photopolymer plate is used to expose a design in the sun.  It is washed in water to reveal the image hardened by the UV rays. The plate is dried and printed on the etching press. The original design needs to be applied onto clear transparency film.

 

 This can be done with existing photographs or drawings at Officeworks.  They also provide transparencies and copy for 80 cents. If this is not possible, then photocopies with a variety of illustrations will be provided on the day. These can be cut for a collage to create your image. 

 

Many pressed leaves and textures from nature will be introduced as elements to include in your compositions. Emphasis on colour printing using the viscosity colour method as well as A la Poupee and chine colee will be applied creating a stunning print portfolio. 

 

There will be 2 solar plate available 15x10 cm  (A6 size). and 1 test plate. Many variations in the printing process will be demonstrated. Each participant will create up to 10-12  colourful prints on Stonehenge paper. 

 

Material cost $40 all inclusive.  To be paid to tutor on the day

All materials provided by Seraphina

Contact the office to book into Seraphina's workshop.
