Presented by Huge Mumma Press as part of Melbourne Art Book Fair
This workshop will dive in to various methods of printmaking including screen printing, etching, monoprinting and modified laser printing. The day will include demonstrations, examples of artworks/books created with these methods and conversation about what these techniques provide to contemporary artists and designers. Everyone will have time to get hands on in the studio and leave with an original print of their own.
Hosted in the Warrandyte studio of Artek Halpern-Laurence and Deborah Halpern, attendees will have the unique opportunity to explore both artists’ working studio spaces and creative working environment.
Ticketed event, suitable for all skill levels.
