Wallpaper printing workshop 2: half-drop repeat lino block

May 14 @ 10:00 am - May 15 @ 4:00 pm


Join us for the second (beginners still welcome!) in a series of weekend workshops run by printmaker Rhonda Ellem throughout 2022.

Over the weekend, participants will be guided through the tricky but satisfying process of creating a half-drop repeat lino block. A half-drop repeat, when printed continuously runs seamlessly vertically and horizontally, and is designed to print on wallpaper or fabric. Participants will be encouraged to extend their personal design style, be shown safe cutting techniques, learn a little about colour modulation, and walk away with a half-drop repeat block, a length of wallpaper, and a sampler book.

Lino, wallpaper, paint and book-making materials are supplied. Lino carving tools are available during the workshop.

Date | Sat 14 and Sun 15 May 2022

Time | 10am – 4pm ( Bring lunch or head on up to Six Counties, basic kitchen facilities available in Packsaddle Studio)

Price | $279 including materials.

Where | Packsaddle Studio, access external at the rear of the NERAM building.

Materials | All materials are supplied for the printing of one drop of wallpaper and the making of a sampler book. A basic set of lino tools is provided during the workshop but if you have your own set, please bring them. There will be extra items to assist in the design process that we will ask you to bring along on the weekend, a list will be sent to you after your enrolment.

Class size: 4 to 6 – limited spaces so please be sure to book fast.
