InkMasters Cairns Inc third InkFest, a festival of printmaking, is on again this year! As well as the InkMasters Print Exhibition and the Big Print event, InkFest will again host weekend workshops in a range of mediums. This is a great opportunity to explore or extend your interest in printmaking under the guidance of our professional InkMaster printmakers.

The workshops are ideal for beginners as well as experienced artists. The print you make in this workshop will be exhibited in “New Prints from InkFest 2016 Workshops” exhibition at the Tanks, adjacent to the international InkMasters Print Exhibition 29 Jul-21 Aug 16.

Paul Bong (Bindur Bullin) is a descendant of the Yidinji tribe of the Cairns region. He began training as a printmaker in 1992 at Studio One in Canberra and is an InkMaster of longstanding. Located now in Mirriwinni North Queensland, he has just completed setting up a new fully equipped studio where he conducts workshops. Paul’s work is informed by his indigenous heritage but is contemporary in style.

Intaglio is a printing process that uses and etched or engraved plate. The plate is smeared with ink and wiped clean, then the ink left in the recesses makes the print. The workshop will introduce the classical techniques of intaglio - etching, aquatint and drypoint - in the creation of a shaped plate. Non-traditional tools will be utilized to create found object impressions, textures and tones, e.g. hammers, a dremel tool and wire brushes. Paul will wield his angle grinder to your specifications

All materials are supplied. Bookings Essential. Email to book.

The event will be held at R Block Art Studio.
