Printmaking workshop with Richard Tetrault

Printing Workshop with Richard Tetrault

Saturday & Sunday April 14 & 15, 2018

Mahon Hall, Salt Spring Island

Designed for all levels of experience in printmaking, from beginners to advanced levels, the workshop will cover the basics of relief printmaking, including tools, sharpening, papers, inks, colour mixing and registration technique.  Incorporating a range of chisels, gouges and other tools, the workshop will explore some of the textural possibilities that can be achieved in wood and linocuts.

During the two days of this workshop, participants will develop their own design, translate it to the block, and carve and print their edition. There will also be a collaborative process for the workshop — each participant will contribute to a collective piece which will be hand printed on a roll of Mulberry paper and mounted as a print mural at the end of the workshop.

Richard Tetrault is a Vancouver printmaker and muralist. He has exhibited his work locally and internationally and taught for years at UBC and Malaspina Print Co-operative.

This is the 7th of Richard Tetrault’s popular printmaking workshops. He is a master printer and an excellent teacher and his workshops, full of repeat participants, have launched several printmaking careers on the island.

$225 plus gst – materials, tools, press included – maximum 15

Richard will be assisted in the workshop by Nora Layard and Gillian McConnell.
