Printmaking Workshops Dates February-June 2024

Whether you are new to the craft of printmaking, or wanting to extend your current creative skills, please join me in a small-group printmaking workshop held in my own private art studio in beautiful Maleny. Maleny is nestled in the heart of the Sunshine Coast Hinterland, just over an easy hours drive north of Brisbane.

ALL MATERIALS INCLUDED

Every workshop is inclusive of all tools and materials, eliminating the need for pre-purchasing supplies. Feel free to bring your own tools and kit if you already have them.

You will leave your workshop with handouts and information about what and where to buy, to a range of different budget options, to enhance your newly acquired skills beyond our workshop.

Workshops maintain an intimate setting with a maximum of 5 or 6 students, depending on the specific workshop. This ensures that everyone receives individualised attention, fostering a comfortable and engaging experience.

In the event that a workshop is already at full capacity when you enrol, I will promptly notify you and add your name to the workshop’s waitlist.

EXTRA DATES & WAIT LISTS

Workshops are organised in 6-month blocks, with additional dates added as workshops reach full capacity, dependent on time availability.

What is an Artist Book?

An artist book is a handmade book, often intimate and personal. It can be one-of-a-kind or form an edition. And it is a fabulous way to use prints – be it prints from your stash or create new prints with an express intention of incorporating them into an artist book. My Artist Book workshops are about teaching you several different approaches to making your own books. You leave each workshops with handouts and instructions to keep making at home.

Click here to read some blog posts about my books.

“An artist’s book is a medium of artistic expression that uses the form or function of “book” as inspiration. It is the artistic initiative seen in the illustration, choice of materials, creation process, layout and design that makes it an art object.”
Anne Evenhaugen, What is an artist’s book?
