Print Day in May 2020
by Inkmasters Cairns
Print at home - show online!
Celebrate Print day in May by cooking up a print at home - kitchen litho, cottage collographs, garage gelliprints, mansion monoprints, front fence frottage, residence reliefs, potato prints.... With tertiary education courses now being delivered online in many countries, there are lots of ideas and resources published on Facebook and Youtube to kick-start inspiration if any is needed!
InkMasters Cairns has entered into the spirit of Print Day in May for the past 2 years. We have thrown open open the doors of our workshop and invited people (including those who might never have made an original print before) to come and create something with us.
This year, with the COVID19 pandemic forcing physical distancing and the closure of cultural facilities, printmakers are faced with the challenge of making-do without access to the usual equipment. But challenges also present great opportunities for experimentation, innovation and problem solving. We invite anyone to improvise and make prints with whatever materials and tools come to hand at home.
So get creative and send us selfies of you at work and your prints; we will post on our own website and social media, and share them with the world-wide printmaking community.
Send before 2 May to inkmasters.cairnsAThotmail.com
Start now and spread the word!!!!
