Carborundum and Drypoint Printmaking

5 Aug 2017 - 6 Aug 2017

Work with Brenda Tye in a workshop which teaches a flexible, spontaneous and painterly approach to working with carborundum.

As a medium carborundum is particularity suited to large scale works, perhaps due to the affordability of materials and directness of mark making. While it can be notoriously difficult to print, it produces images that retain the direct response of the artist’s touch, yet convert the mark through the printing medium into unexpected outcomes.

Students will work with a layering approach using dry point and woodgrain for added possibilities, and a limited colour approach. A series of drawings using still life objects from nature will form the basis of each student's image. Please feel free to bring in any sketches, reference material or objects you wish to draw.

The tutor, Brenda Tye, is a printmaker/ painter. She is a practising visual artist and worked in the printmaking department, College of Fine Arts, UNSW for 14 years and teaches in their short courses program. She graduated from the University of Wollongong with a Bachelor of Creative Arts Degree, Honours. In 2009 she established The Art School Studio that teaches adults and children a broad range of art making skills. She conducts weekly workshops at the Art Gallery of NSW, through the members program. Tye Specializes in collaborating with other artists to make prints, and has printed and collaborated with Peter Sharp on his last four series of prints, over a period of 15 years.

Cost: $245. Class takes place from 10am - 4pm on Saturday 5 & Sunday 6 August 2017.
