PCANZ Summer School Scholarship 2020

Calling all printmakers!

Print Council Aotearoa New Zealand is inviting nominations/applications for the summer school scholarship for an emerging printmaker to attend Summer School in January 2020 in Tauranga.

The award includes attendance at the Summer School, membership of PCANZ for 2020 (valued at $50) and an additional cash amount of $500 which is intended for materials, accommodation and travel to the summer school.

We are interested in printmakers who would develop printmaking skills of their own in order to

  • who are unable to raise the funds to attend the summer school already.

Workshop 1 – Jeff Sippel

the gift - jeff sippel

the gift - jeff sippel

Mokulito (moku/wood – lito/lithography) and Waterless Lithography: Mokulito replaces the traditional stone used in lithography with a sheet of plywood. The printed quality is a blend of soft traditional lithographic mark-making and hard-edged woodcut marks. Waterless lithography uses water-repellent silicone coated plates, this process works and looks similar to traditional lithography, but is less expensive, less toxic and more environmentally sound. Both processes are suitable for small editions.

Alternatively a 4 day class with Jeff Sippel in Wellington on Thur 23- Sun 26 Jan at The Learning Connexion in Lower Hutt.

Workshop 2 - Nicol Sanders-O’Shea

Screen-printing for paper, hard surfaces and/or fabric: Learn a range of stencil making techniques for printing multiple layers, registration techniques for printed editions. We will be using eco-friendly inks that are non-toxic and environmentally friendly.

Workshop 3 – Lynette Fisher and Karolina Bemova

Laser cut wood relief: Learn a range of software skills to create laser cut wood relief blocks for printing. Experiment with relief printing processes and techniques for printed editions and one-off prints.

Workshop 4 – Marci Tackett

Open studio: Work independently with tutor support on your own printed project. Screen print, relief and intaglio equipment will be available.
