CAW ART GROUPS
Please contact the Convenor with any questions about this group.
The Monday morning Printmaking Workgroup has fun experimenting with various print techniques. This is not a tutored workgroup – we’re self-taught printmakers with varying levels of experience and enjoy helping each other learn about the endless options in our medium.
We work in a non-toxic environment, using water-based and oil-based inks for relief blocks, which are printed by hand as well as on the press. We use silk-cut lino, blue/green soft plastic plates or white Ezy-Cut for relief prints. Intaglio prints are usually produced on plexiglass plates with oil-based inks. Some of us also work with collagraphy,
monoprinting and experiment with mixed mediums.
Artists of all skill levels are welcome to join our group. We have a stock of materials which we’re willing to share with newcomers until they are more familiar with the medium.
Work in progress during our workgroup sessions.
