Open Access Sessions

Open Access Sessions are when members (and non members for up to 3 sessions) can come along and work on their own print project. There is always someone in the studio to help with setting the press or working out some of those printmaking questions that you have.

There is two sessions on Tuesdays. 12 noon to 4pm and then 4pm to 8pm. Each session is $10. Bring your own Project, paper and ink. We supply the press, and cleaning up materials.

Saturday Open Access Sessions are often on either the 2nd and 4th Saturday unless we have a workshop on that day. They start at 11am and finish at 3pm. $11 per session.

Tuesdays will be happening each week from Tuesday 23rd October to Tuesday 18th December.

The next Saturday session will be October 27th.

Look Ma No Emulsion

Screenprinting without an exposure unit

Friday 21st September

10am to 4pm. $110

Working with Stencil cut, Wax resist and Blockout techniques. We will have a day of experimenting on the screens.

  • Stencils have a hard edge, street art feel that can range from very simple to complex.
  • Wax resist can be a painterly, soft edged process, building up layers of colour.
  • Blockout uses Speedball blockout and/or wax crayons. The crayons can be used whilst the ink is in the screen to alter an image as your working on it.

We will be printing on paper during the workshop, but these techniques are also suitable for printing on fabrics.
