Printmaking

Printmaking | Martha Ritchie
June 8 + 9 | 1:00pm – 5:00pm
General $150+gst | Member $135+gst
all supplies included | ages 14+

Two full days of printmaking with professional artist Martha Ritchie. Day one will be a playful introduction to gelatin mono printing followed by block printing. Below is a brief description of each technique. Both techniques are accessible and easily combined to create a layered work of art.




Gelatin mono printing: Using a thin sheet of gelatin as the inking surface, you will experiment and play with various objects, tools and textures to create a variety of effects, patterns and prints transferred onto paper. See example here.

Block Printing:
This technique involves carving out the negative space of your hand drawn design into a soft rubber block. You will then transfer your design into paper by coating the block with ink and pressing it onto your desire surface. Peeling the black and paper apart will reveal your final product.
