Work with Seraphine Martin to produce a stunning portfolio of up to ten colourful prints using Aluminium plates etched in copper sulphate.
Like traditional etching, this innovative process of aluminium etching involves intaglio techniques such as hard ground and soft ground using textures from found objects.
Tonal passages similar to the aquatint technique are created without rosin dust, making this a non-toxic, friendly approach to fine art printmaking. Emphasis on colour will involve using viscosity in the inks and stencils with up to 6 colours and one passage through the press resulting in exciting variations to enhance your image.
This two day workshop is suitable for beginners and experienced printmakers.
The tutor, Seraphina Martin, graduated from the Paris Ecole National Des Beaux Arts, majoring in printmaking in 1977. She has taught at the Sydney University Art workshop as well as Meadowbank and Hornsby TAFES for the past 25 years. Seraphina was the recipient of the Moya Dyring Studio at the Cite des Arts, Paris in 1988 where she studied viscosity colour printing at the Atelier 17, under master printmaker S.W. Hayter. Her work is represented in many private and public collections and she continues to participate in both solo and group exhibitions in Australia and overseas. She was an Artist in Residence at the Canberra School of Art in 2005 and most recently at the Government School of Art in Calcutta and Kola Bhavan University in Shantineketan in West Bengal, India in 2012 and has just completed an Artist in Residence in the print department of the Canberra School of Art.
