On Friday the Southern Printmakers Association was very lucky to have Printmaker, Painter, Musican and Writer Gary Makin deliver an excellent demonstration on Waterless Lithography.
16 of our members were present for the eye opening perspective on printmaking and how with the use of some household items and inspiration many different possibilities on creating an image can be achieved.
Our workshop was very successful with 15 members in attendance. Leona was very happy to demonstrate the Akua Inks and Pin Press for free and while she wasn’t a printmaker (we were not too intimidating i hope) she was happy for us to have a play with the products to see how we liked them. Georgia really got into it so we look forward to some feed back at a later date perhaps.
The reduction monotype approach was quite interesting and while i have layered plates before the wiping out of sections was a great idea.The pin press was a good option for those with limited space but a bit limited in its application.I hope you all enjoyed the morning, any feedback or ideas are welcome.
