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 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.

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.

Drawing on the Mind’s Eye – A drawing workshop for art teachers with Jock Clutterbuck

Art is created from a special place in ones mind; drawing on the mind’s eye is a way to access that space. Designed and run by esteemed artist and teacher Jock Clutterbuck, this unique workshop provides techniques to guide and teach students how to access their inner creativity through drawing. The workshop includes specific components that have been designed to be readily translated into a senior high school curriculum.

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.

Jock is a sculptor and printmaker of national significance, known for his sophisticated abstract forms executed with precision and detail, while still maintaining an impression of underlying esoteric mysticism. Clutterbuck studied sculpture and drawing at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology from 1965–66, where he subsequently taught from 1969–73 before taking up a role as the lecturer in Sculpture at the Victorian College of the Arts from 1974–2000. He is represented in many national and international public art collections and has received numerous awards.
