Reduction Lino Print Demonstration – Pip Williams
1 February @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm| $20 per person inc. light refreshments
Demonstration Series – FEBRUARY 1ST 2020
During this session Pip will take you through a demonstration of the reduction technique of hand printing in lino from the workshop at Artisans of Australia in Drysdale. This technique uses one block, as opposed to several, and through its very nature creates limited edition prints that are completely unique every time.
This demonstration has limited spaces, creating an intimate event with Pip where you will gain first hand experience with a highly acclaimed local artist, who is represented in many private collections worldwide.
Pip’s printmaking heroes are Claude Flight and the Grosvenor School of the 1920s & 30s, as well as Picasso for supposedly inventing the reduction technique. Her theme of colour and movement reflects her personal feelings and recollect recent travels, as well as her hectic life on the Bellarine.
Pip conducts workshops in hand printing lino at her gallery, 135gallery, which is open most Saturday afternoons or by appointment. At the gallery are a huge range of her limited edition prints (framed and unframed) as well as a collection of original aboriginal prints from the Central Deserts of Australia.
The medium of lino printing is incredibly flexible, exciting, unpredictable and sometimes extremely complicated – especially when several colours are involved. There is so much to explore in this process and this demonstration is just the start of your journey, as we are sure that once you have watched Pip in action you will be hooked!
