Drawing on the Mind’s Eye – Workshop with Jock Clutterbuck

Clutterbuck Workshop

The Baldessin Press & Studio invites you to join esteemed artist Jock Clutterbuck for a weekend masterclass in the tranquil surrounds of the St Andrews bushland.

Art is created from a sacred, special place in ones mind; drawing on the mind’s eye is a way to access that space. Learning how to see differently and powerfully is fundamental to what we do as Artists. Noticing our world, looking, and seeing, are integral in being able to choose or act from ourselves. It is a transition from one state to another. This program is designed to empower new looking and seeing as they relate to the broader parameters of drawing and Art making, and the implications of this for our enquiry into the Self. In our ordinary state we are addicted to the ordinariness and until we can really see this, nothing can change. Drawing on the mind’s eye provides a series of strategies to break down this addiction and open up access to a different world.

Jock Clutterbuck is a senior Australian sculptor and printmaker, practicing for over 50 years, whose work is represented by Australian Galleries and in collections around Australia, Europe, New Zealand, and America. Jock has maintained a deep interest in spiritual enquiry over the last 40 years, keeping in contact with the evolution of the new paradigm, organising conferences, workshops and curated exhibitions around the theme of the spiritual enquiry that is Art.

THE WORKSHOP

Sat-Sun 13 & 14 Oct 2018
10am – 5pm + optional Sat evening drawing session
The Baldessin Press & Studio, St Andrews
$550 (all materials included)

The practical component of this program looks at how we can build and develop visualization skills from simple beginnings into useful results by learning to apply active and passive seeing to a drawing context.

The theoretical component looks at the relationship of energies to creativity, how to appropriately manage finer energies and apply this to creative output.

Photopolymer Photogravure – AUGUST WEEK-END WORKSHOP

with Silvi Glattauer

When  Sat & Sun 4 & 5 August 2018
Hours 10 am – 4 pm
Cost $550 (materials partly included)
Enrolments info@baldessinpress.com.au or fill out form below

2 Day Workshop
Explore and learn the use of photopolymer printing plates in combination with digital photography to create Photogravure etchings. This is a completely non-toxic approach without the use of solvents, or acids.

This workshop will teach you the ‘Direct to Plate’ system. We transfer the image directly on to the plate with the use of an inkjet printer. Plates are then exposed using UV light, processed with water and printed via an etching press. 

We do not use films for making plates, which simplifies the process immensely. Giving you more time to make prints!

This workshop will give you an insight into the hybridisation of digital techniques with the hand made print. We will look at printmaking techniques, including inks and paper options, setting up the etching press, color options with roll ups and digital chine colle.

What is Direct to Plate photopolymer photogravure?

Direct to Plate photopolymer photogravure is a process that uses photopolymer plates in combination with digital photography. The image is transferred directly on to the plate with the use of an inkjet printer. Plates are then exposed using UV light, processed with water and printed via an etching press. This method does away with the need for a double exposure and the vacuum frame meaning you will spend less time making plates, and more time making prints!

Working with Silvi offers an insight into the hybridisation of digital techniques with hand made printing processes and covers printmaking techniques, including various ink and paper options. She teaches a non-toxic approach without the use of solvents or acids. This tuition assumes that you have a basic working knowledge of Photoshop and your digital camera.

Fee
$450 for one person, 2 people $350 each person  (materials charged extra).
Dates to suit you – week day or weekend
