Join local artist Ann Bartholomeusz in The Studio for an introduction to intaglio printmaking with alternative materials. In this workshop, participants will design and create a 12 x 15cm or 12 x 12cm print using a Tetra Pak carton as a plate. Ann will demonstrate how to use an etching needle, craft knife or pen to draw, scratch and cut into the interior layer of the carton and create an image that will hold ink. Participants will be assisted to use Umbrella’s etching press to produce a set of prints on quality printmaking paper.

Attendees may bring their own reference material to work from or take inspiration from Ann’s collection of images and example prints. All materials and equipment are provided, including aprons and printmaking inks in a variety of colours. No prior experience is required.
