Join Deborah Wace for a 4 hour introduction to Intaglio Printmaking – Drypoint and Monoprint techniques. Learn the process involved in creating a drypoint or monoprint image onto a plate, then print these using Deborah’s beautiful old etching press.
All materials will be supplied, including a range of botanical materials and a microscope, for reference and use. All you need to bring is your creativity, enthusiasm…. and an apron.
The workshop is suitable for complete beginners, and children over the age of 8 are also invited to attend. Afternoon tea will also be provided.
Come and delight in the simple mark making and produce your own original work. Bookings are limited to 10 attendees, so get in quickly to avoid missing out.

The cross species mirroring of form, and the lure for pollination, are the specialty of orchids; the symbiotic transfer of nutrient from fungus to root. Orchids are sensual, strange, finely attuned and minutely adapted to their ecological niche.
Deborah Wace brings Tasmanian orchids up close and personal with large printed Intaglio Drypoint and Monoprint works, as well as botanical specimen arrangements and the display of her printmaking processes. Deborah’s passion and advocacy for wild habitat infuses her artwork and delights the senses.
