Come and create original prints using metal, mylar and carton plates. Experiment with printmaking inks, pastels and watercolours using CBBAG’s small etching press, which is fun and easy to use!
Learn about pressure printing, pouchoir, water wash-up non-toxic inks, and konnyaku – techniques that will push your prints beyond the traditional. Print on Western and Japanese papers and see what works best for your practice!
Create limited edition prints, Artist’s Books, or simply explore printmaking to expand your skills. The possibilities are endless! Bring drawings, photographs – anything that will inspire you!
Beginners are welcome.
Liz Menard is a Toronto-based printmaker, visual artist, and educator. Her practice includes drawing, painting, and printmaking. “My interest is in landscape and how our perception of the landscape helps us define who we think we are. I am particularly drawn to water – especially fens, bogs, streams, rivers and lakes as well as the life these systems support. However, I am increasingly concerned about not only our water, but the native plant species and wildlife which our water systems sustain. Like our environment, these things need to be cared for, protected, and nurtured.” Please visit Liz’s website: www.lizmenard.ca
