Last Saturday a group of lucky secondary students attended a printmaking demonstration and workshop presented by Jason Greig.
For print-nerds like me (and there are plenty of others out there... you know who you are Vangioni!) it was a real treat to watch Jason work. If you have seen his Jekyll and Hyde works currently in Montreal Street, it's easy to see that he is master of monoprinting.
It was a rare chance to watch closely as an artist worked and the students made the most of the opportunity with lots of questions, photos and some intense note-making. In the afternoon the students got to make their own monoprints with Jason guiding them through the process with lots of helpful advice and a sharp eye for detail.
Thanks to Jason for the great workshop and to the school of Art and Design at CPIT for providing the materials and allowing us to use their printing studio.
