Drawing, Screen Printing & Bookbinding with Australian Flora
On Sat 30, Sun 31 March & Mon 1 April, join artist Kelly Stewart for this unique course.
The workshop offers an opportunity to focus on mark making and drawings with the theme of Australian Flora. Tutor and artist Kelly Stewart has recently spent time in her native country and will be bringing back samples of Australian Flora as resource materials for this course. During this 3 day workshop, you will be converting drawings and mark making from day 1 into the screen printing process on day 2, followed by the final day of bookbinding where your beautiful flora inspired prints will become your very own artist book.
You will learn how to combine layers of mark making by using a range of materials to draw and paint directly onto films, which will then be exposed onto screens for printing. You'll also learn how to mix inks with a view to layering and over lapping their imagery onto a range of papers. Subsequently you will be though how to hand stitch and bind your prints into a hardcover artist book.
Do you already know how to screen print and/or bookbind but are interested in having the unique opportunity to draw from samples of beautiful Australian Flora? You can book onto the drawing day independently here.
