Gelli Plates + Open Acrylics = Monotype Magic
With Golden Artist Educator Turiya Bruce
10am till 4 pm – $120
A day of exploring the unlimited fun and beauty with the latest innovation of Monotyping: the Gelli plate.
Based on the original gelatine plate and hectograph this flexible plate will constantly surprise and mesmerise with its unique capabilities. The sensitivity of the plate is such that it gives optimal paint release onto paper without the need of a press.
Stencilling and layers of acrylic paint will engage and inspire you , as Turiya guides and demonstrates many facets of this delightful form of artist printing.
As a participant you will have the use of a Gelli plate and a limited range of Golden Open acrylics with which to make your own monotypes. It is also advised to bring a selection of your own favourite acrylic paints and acrylic inks, stencils and soft found natural objects that you can use to impress upon the plate. Bring paper too if you have some… however other paints or products are available from the art shop to purchase.
BYO lunch to share, morning tea provided.
Places limited to 8 participants.
Thursday 23rd January (fully booked) & Wednesday 29th January
the Secrets of Creativity, the secrets I wish I had known 25 years ago
with Zom Osborne
10am till 4.30pm – $95
In this workshop I will share the secrets of creativity that I have learned from 23 years as a practicing artist. From complete beginners who want to explore their creativity to experienced creatives feeling stuck or wanting to expand, these secrets are for everyone.
“I share how creativity works, how to call in inspiration, what slows creativity and what stops it completely. I call it ‘the Secrets of Creativity’ because much of what I reveal is counter to how we have been taught to do things. My creativity expanded exponentially since I discovered these ‘rules’.”
This is an experiential workshop, there will be lots of doing and experiencing and play. No need to know how to draw or paint.
Bring your lunch or walk a little stroll away to find shops and cafés.
