I will be running a linocut workshop in Ubud in January 2015. The new website is now up and I am so excited to be offering this trip. I will need to get deposits by October to confirm places and book the hotel. Click here to go to the website.
I have decided to have a maximum of only 12 participants. Twelve people is a good sized group so you can learn from others and see different approaches to the medium, but is small enough that everyone can receive individual attention when they need it.
Ubud is an inspirational place, the landscape and surroundings will provide many subjects to choose from.
I have chosen the Arma resort for our accommodation and to do the workshop. I will be going up to stay there in October, just to make sure everything will be in place for January. The resort is attached to a museum/gallery, it has a space to run classes from as well as beautiful gardens and traditional Balinese architecture. See the website for more info and pictures.
Linocut is a great place to start if you have never done printmaking before. It requires little in special equipment, and besides monoprinting it is the only method which does not require a press to print. The skills you learn can easily be transferred to working at home from the kitchen table. The materials kit provided will have everything you need while you are there and is yours to keep to make subsequent linocuts from home.
The workshop will be suitable for beginners and intermediate students. In the classes I teach at the Fremantle Arts Centre I am used to having students with a variety of backgrounds and experience in the class. For beginners I offer a step by step approach to linocut and for more advanced students I am available to help with decision making and different approaches so you can take your linocut to the next level.
There will be a free day in the middle so you can explore Ubud or go on a tour and take photos to use as subject matter for your next linocut.
