Calling young artists – Join Umbrella and artist Kerrie Everett Horrocks to create your own linocut prints! Students will be guided through the printmaking process and will carve their designs into a lino sheet before printing them on greeting cards, postcards, or printmaking paper.

This workshop is suitable for beginners, and preparations are not necessary. However, students can bring reference materials (e. g. sketches, drawings, photos, or imagery), which they can transfer onto their sheet of linoleum. All necessary materials and tools will be provided, and aprons are available. Students should wear closed-in shoes.

Invite your friends and RSVP to the Facebook event here.
Limited to 10 spaces (ages 13-17) | Bookings close 12.30pm Thursday 29 September 2022. | Workshop is subject to cancellation, if a minimum number of participants is not reached by 3pm Tuesday 27 September 2022. | This workshop will take place in Umbrella’s downstairs Makerspace at 408 Flinders St (next to Mary Who? Bookshop and opposite Woolworths). Visitors must comply with Umbrella’s COVID-19 Safety Plan and directives.

 

Kerrie Everett Horrocks is an artist, dive instructor and educator based in Townsville. Having been immersed in the waters off the Queensland coast her entire life (amongst a family of ocean lovers) and creating art for as long as she can remember, her passions have become naturally intertwined in recent years. After completing a Bachelor of Visual Arts at James Cook University in Townsville, Kerrie continued her studies in Underwater Archaeology, Art History and Education while diving with Adrenalin Snorkel and Dive. She has been a teacher and dive instructor for over a decade and brings the excitement of diving the Great Barrier Reef to many of her artworks. Kerrie is a member of Umbrella’s studio access group, and her recent work has spanned printmaking, painting, textiles and drawing.
