Irena Conomos and Gary Shinfield are holding a second workshop in the Blue Mountains, from Tuesday 16th to Friday the 19th of January. This workshop will be similar to the first.
The basis of this workshop is an immersive experience responding to the environment, climatic conditions and nature in all its manifestations. Your work will be shaped by these experiences and any changes as they unfold.
From this exploration you will work independently developing your own ideas over the period of the workshop, working with two artists with many years experience in their respective fields of printmaking and photography.
Explore the Grose Valley and Blue Mountains National Park through daily excursion and research
Create through printmaking, drawing and photography
Develop your ideas in the studio.
In the workshop you will be working with multiple plates – 3 woodblocks and one piece of lino – to build a composite image or series of images. We will also explore ink painting in the landscape, the transfer of these onto blocks, etching lino, and various methods of multi plate printing.

In this workshop you will be encouraged to explore photographically to move past the preconceived or familiar developing images using the photographs ability to reveal what is often unseen. The resulting work may remain as digital files for you to work on over time, images can be printed onsite or you can combine these with overprinting or as inspiration to draw on plates.
