INTRO TO PRINT - EVENING

WHAT : Introduction to Print
WHEN : 6 x Thurs evenings
8, 15, 22 Feb, 1, 8, 15 March

TIME : 6-9pm
COST : Members $399, Non-members $459, Non-members Concession $439

The aim of this course is to introduce you to the diverse world of printmaking and what Megalo has to offer! In this introductory print taster class you will be guided through the processes of relief printing, screen printing + etching. 

RELIEF PRINTING: The lino print is made by cutting and chiselling the surface of the lino to create light or white areas. Ink is applied using a roller to the surface of the block. Paper is laid onto the surface and printed through a press or by hand using a baren.

SCREEN PRINT: Using hand-cut or photographic stencils on a stretched mesh screen, ink is passed through the stencil using a squeegee. The ink is finely layered onto the surface of fabric, paper or other surface.

ETCHING: A type of intaglio printmaking. Lines and marks are acid etched into the surface of a copper or zinc plate to create grooves that hold ink for printing. Ink is pushed into the grooves using tarlatan (starched muslin) and then the surface of the plate is wiped clean with tissue. Dampened paper is laid onto the plate and run through a press at high pressure. The ink is transferred to the paper leaving a positive image. Please note that studio cleaning is an important part of each class and each student will be taught the correct procedure.

WHEN : Sat 24 + Sun 25 March 2018
TIME : 10am to 4pm
COST : Members $310, Non-members $370, Non-members Concession $350

Enjoy a creative weekend with printmaker Seraphina Martin.

In this hands-on two-day workshop, Seraphina will teach you simple techniques used in solar plate etching. Using UV rays from the sun, solar plate etching is a quick, simple and non-toxic printmaking technique.

You will create an image using drawings, photographs or collage, then photocopy your final composition onto acetate film. This print will be exposed onto a photosensitive photo-polymer plate, ready for printing on the etching press. Viscosity inks on rollers will allow for some exquisite colour variations towards a stunning print portfolio.

Price of workshop includes all materials.
