Exhibition sparks printmaking program

Two inspiring printmaking workshops prompted by the important Barbara Hanrahan exhibition, will be held in Naracoorte during the June long weekend.

Sally Caston, an Adelaide Hills artist will run a Drypoint printing day and a Lino printing two-day workshop at the Naracoorte Regional Art Gallery.

On exhibition in the Gallery will be the much-anticipated Bee-stung lips: Barbara Hanrahan works on paper 1960-91 which comprises 74 works.

The Drypoint workshop on June 10 will provide a comprehensive introduction to etching on acetate.

Participants will learn about the engraving process, inking, paper choice and ways to add colour.

During the two day intensive Lino printing workshop, Ms Caston will discuss Barbara Hanrahan’s life, work, inspiration and the techniques she used.

Budding printmakers will learn relief printing, linocut techniques, paper handling and how to use a press and create a number of small relief prints.

This will be held on June 11 and June 12.

Ms Caston, who grew up at Keith, studied illustration at university and has spent more than 20 years leading a design and marketing consultancy in Adelaide.

Her love of printmaking stems from a reaction against the digital, the mass-produced and overexposure to advertising.

Ms Caston gains inspiration from her surroundings and will showcase her close studies of nature and landscapes.
